This map represents the approximate locations of incidents of sick and dead birds based on reports submitted to the CWHC by the public. These incidents are represented on the map as either probable (blue markers), suspect (green markers), or confirmed (red markers)cases as defined below.

Probable: Appropriate species based on past outbreaks (i.e. purple finch, American goldfinch, pine siskin, and Rock pigeons) and gross examination of the specimen at our Atlantic RegionalCentre to identify lesions consistent with trichomonosis (these will later be identified as confirmed cases if they have appropriate microscopic lesions). These are identified as green markers on the map.

Suspect: Appropriate species based on past outbreaks and reported clinical signs consistent with trichomonosis (e.g. fluffed up, regurgitating food or water, unable to fly, drooling, matted wet feathers on head and breast and food debris at corners of the beak). These cases are reported by the general public to our Centre but no specimen is submitted for post mortem examination. They are identified as red markers on the map.

Confirmed by testing: These cases have been tested at a CWHC Regional Centre and confirmed to have Trichomonosis.
