Alexandria Zoo has temporarily moved most of its bird species off-view to protect them from a highly contagious avian influenza that has spread across the country this year and was recently reported in Louisiana. The virus, also known as bird flu, is typically spread by wild birds during seasonal migrations. To date, no cases have been detected at the zoo. Although the avian flu can be deadly for birds, it poses little risk to humans, experts say.
