Should we expect a resurgence of cases in Alberta in the fall when wild birds are migrating south?
Has there been an recognizable increase in the diagnoses of Human AI associated with this increase in wildlife disease?
What about bird feeders? Do we have to stop feeding back yard birds?

I belong to an Alberta Wild Bird group on Facebook and they reported multiple dead waterfowl at Frank Lake, I was surprised to see no cases of Avian Flu in wild birds in Alberta? Did I hear that wrong? If not, were any of the dead birds at Frank lake invetigated?
There is most definitely HPAI in wild birds in Alberta!
what implications for human food security?
Interesting… what may be considered ‘common’ in using common sense practices as it may relate into basic rights and the potential diverse complexity within one health.
The poultry producers are thinking of much natural way of raising commercial birds, particularly layers like free ranging birds. Keeping in mind HPAI, what is suggested to those producers?
Does H5N1 have the same timeline as other strains for development of clinical signs? I have heard that it takes longer to see the mortality rates we usually see for HPAI and that it makes early detection harder.
Canada Geese have invaded our parks and other recreation areas resulting in "Ca-Ca" deposits that are almost impossible to avoid. Are we at risk of spreading the virus by walking our dogs?
many households have cats that spend at least part of time outdoors. implications?
Thank you Douglas Whiteside and Keith Lehman for the presentation, Q & A.
Is there any evidence for a shift in mutation capacity such as what has been observed in covid-19? Any ability to comment on possible influence of more severe weather fluctuations that are being seen in association with climate warming?
The wild birds that have tested positive does not reflect the actual number of wild birds that have died from this.
Is any existing AI vaccine effective to some extent?
Can you comment on the risk to pet birds such as budgies, cockatiels, especially if they escape the home? Risk for a stray bird (need for quarantine when caught again). Thanks
Couple of questions to both speakers: Climate change will have impact on wild birds migration and their interaction with humans and domesticated animals. Do you think, we will have more outbreaks in the future? What should be done to prevent outbreaks?
Could Doug talk about insect transmission?
Mr. Awais Ghaffar
What about the pigs? can they play any role in mutation?
Michele; Great seminar with great choice of presenters
