PVET closely monitors migratory bird areas

by MG Edale Jr

Ilagan, Isabela (December 3) -- The Provincial Veterinary Office is closely monitoring areas that are often visited by migratory birds as the entry of these birds are expected this month.

Provincial Veterinary Office Angel Naui said that this month is expected the entry of flocks of migratory birds from other Asian countries.

Naui said the entry must be closely monitored as these birds might be carriers of the dreaded Bird Flu virus that can afflict human beings if this disease will be transferred to human beings.

In this province, Naui said that there are three areas oftenly visited by migratory birds and the PVET is monitoring the areas and ensure that migratory birds are not carrier of the dreaded virus.

The three areas are the Monterey Farm in Cauayan City, Magat Dam in Ramon and in Isabela's coastal town of Palanan, Isabela.

The monitoring is regularly conducted each year by the PVET as the migratory birds season in the country where these bird species come in flock looking for a place where they could ease themselves.

The PVET also tapped barangay leaders to monitor and report to PVET if there are migratory birds spotted in their areas.

Migratory birds usually migrate in tropical countries when cold weather prevails in northern hemisphere. (PIA Isabela) [top]
