This data set contains three spreadsheets with results of Influenza A Virus (IAV) screening in blood from Pacific, Red-throated, and Yellow-billed Loons at three locations in Alaska. Loons were captured along the Beaufort Sea Coast, Chukchi Sea Coast, and Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta from 2008-2017. Three different tests were used and the results are presented in separate spreadsheets. All serum samples were screened for IAV antibodies using a blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (bELISA). A subsample were screened using agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID), and hemagglutination inhibition assays (HI).
