Bird flu maps

For those really into the bird flu theme, I learned (via Avian Flu-What You Need to Know) of some informative maps showing South East Asian pig and poultry densities, areas of H5N1 infection and migratory bird pathways. Warning: these maps take up a lot of bandwidth. Don't try this on a dial-up.

The map links come courtesy of one of Silviu's readers, Mike Fieschko. Many thanks. And while I am on the topic of other bird flu blogs (and Silviu's Avian Flu - What you Need to Know is highly recommended), I have been remiss here in not giving my strongest recommendations to Crawford Killian's H5N1 blog. I check both daily. Good coverage, excellent commentary. Thanks to both.
