Colorado State University is offering guidance for flock owners to defend against avian influenza.

This year, avian influenza has been detected in wild bird species across 31 states. Also, there have been detections in backyard and commercial poultry flocks – impacting more than 45 million poultry and birds.

On our website, we have the article with signs, how it is being transmitted, and how to protect your own flock.

And, our photo of the week publishes today on social media and on our website.

The amazing photo is of an Osprey Diving into City Park Lake in Fort Collins. The photo was taken by Fort Collins resident Rawlin Davidson.
