Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

An article concerning West Nile virus in the June 23 edition of the Post Independent neglected to mention that area residents interested in reporting sightings of dead birds should not report them to Garfield County, but to a statewide hotline for that purpose – 1 (877) 462-2911 – that is staffed from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

Garfield County is not conducting a bird survey of its own in connection with West Nile virus because the disease is now considered endemic to Colorado and the U.S.
