  1. The topic of dead crows has come up on my community's chat group (SF Bay area). Apparently people are finding an unusual number of dead crows here and there, with one neighbour reporting 3 on or adjacent to her property -- two of which at the same time. Naturally people are raising the possibility of West Nile disease and I am wondering if anybody has any insight into whether this should be taken seriously, or what the prudent course of action should be. We are aware of the state government's West Nile alert web page and, to answer my own question, I guess it would be only prudent to let them know. Any other thoughts? Thanks!

    What part of Alaska? This is a very worn 1st-summer (aka SY) gull, with at least some Glaucous-winged in it. Depending on where you were, it could be all Glaucous-winged, or it could have Western or Herring ancestry as well.

    Thank you, psweet. Actually, I saw it on the return leg of th journey in Victoria. Sorry for the careless wording.
