    What about transmission of the Zika virus in the bird population? The turkey vulture for example, in recent decades, has become a seasonal visitor from southern climes to regions in eastern Canada such as to my neighbourhood — Montreal. It’s early days in the search for this virus (in the wild), especially in Canada, and I think it would be extremely helpful to discuss the Zika spread beyond the mosquito / human population.
