Over 3,700 Coot Birds Mass Die-off Occured Near the Yolo Bypass in California

Thousands of birds died suddenly in the Yolo Bypass last week. Wildlife specialists have spent the last three days picking up more than 3,700 dead bird carcasses from the shore.

“It’s just shocking to see that kind of die off,” said Laurence Campling, who saw the birds on the ground. “I’ve never seen anything with that amount of birds dead in one place! Easily hundreds of bodies, hundreds of birds all along the side of this flooded field.”

He took pictures and started to worry that something catastrophic was happening. Jeffrey Stoddard, Wildlife Manager for the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, explained that dead American Coots caught a virus called avian cholera, caused by bacteria. It doesn’t pose a risk to humans but other birds can catch it.

“It’s something that we deal with in the wildlife area fairly commonly,” Stoddard said. “It’s something that they carry with them year round. It only comes out when they’re stressed. And this time, it’s a physical stress.”

Like shivering in the cold and being pushed out of their habitat because of high water.

“Just like when we get sick, when we’re close to a lot of our friends and not far away from everyone else, we spread a disease much quicker,” Stoddard said.

Other birds like ducks, geese and herons can catch the virus too, so the most important step for wildlife experts is collecting the carcasses to keep the scavengers from spreading it around.

“It’s been wonderful with the wet winter we’ve had to see the wildlife come back and therefore even more shocking to see something like this happen,” Campling said.

UC Davis has volunteered to incinerate the carcasses for free starting next week.
