Movements of Pintails in Areas Where the H5N1 Virus Has Been Detected in Japan
In 2008, the highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza virus was detected in Whooper Swans at three locations in Japan between 21 April and 5 May. Each of the sites where the H5N1 virus was detected in Whooper Swans was also used by one or more Northern Pintails marked with satellite transmitters. Click the link below to see movements of marked pintails relative to the locations where the H5N1 virus was detected in Whooper Swans.
