A dead crow found in a neighborhood in northwest Fresno last Thursday has tested positive for the West Nile virus.
Tim Phillips, district manager for the Fresno Mosquito and Vector Control District, said Tuesday that three birds also were turned over to test, but the district was able to test only one of them.
"We've had three human West Nile virus cases this season and 10 positive birds," Phillips said. "We haven't got a lot of birds this season, but we're usually pretty high," he added.
Phillips said the bird's nesting range might be an indication that the bird was infected by a West Nile virus-positive mosquito in Fresno.
