The USDA filed a new H5N2 OIE report, which included comments on a 99% relationship between the Fujian H5N2 in Benton County and the northern pintail at Wiser Lake.

In contrast, the new H5N8 OIE report indicated the H5N8 in the gadwall in Butte County California was virtually identical to the H5N8 from the pet falcon near Wiser Lake, suggesting that Benton County sequence represented more diversity between the two H5N2 sequences.

The USDA APHIS National Veterinary Services Laboratory (NVSL) confirmed avian influenza virus (AIV) H5N2 in a backyard mixed flock. Preliminary results indicate that the H5N2 identified is 99% similar to the recent H5N2 isolated from the Northern pintail duck.

As part of the increased AI surveillance of wild birds (performed by testing hunter harvested birds), an H5N8 with an amino acid sequence at the HA cleavage site that is consistent with highly pathogenic avian influenza has been identified in a wild gadwall duck in the Pacific
flyway. HA and NA sequence fragments are essentially identical to that found in the reported gyrfalcon.
