As it gets closer to spring and migratory bird season, more and more people are looking to Alaska to see how the future will be with the Bird Flu H5N1. There's a very good article written by Marie Gilbert of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF).
Alaska is at the overlap of the Asian and North American flyways for migratory birds. Scientists say that could provide an opportunity for exchange of bird flu viruses which could then infect humans.
