HPAI Early Detection Data System (HEDDS)
It’s only been just a little while since the official bird flu testing results in the USA have been provided in a much easier format to receive and review. This is very good news. The mailing list is one way to review the latest data. Another is to use their RSS feeds.

Just as a reminder–
HPAI is highly pathogenic avian influenza (particularly the H5N1 strain)
LPAI is low pathogenic avian influenza
“Bird flu” of the pandemic concern (H5N1) HAS been detected in wild birds in the USA and North America. It is of low pathogenicity (LPAI).
