Two dead birds in Modesto have tested positive for West Nile Virus, the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency said Monday.

This marks 2013?s first appearance of the virus in the county.

In all of California, West Nile has been found in 17 dead birds and 39 mosquitoes. The virus has also been confirmed to have killed on human.

Health officials ask the public to report dead birds, particularly crows, ravens, magpies, jays, hawks and eagles. You can do so by calling 1-877-968-2473 or clicking here.

Aside from reporting dead birds, residents are asked to get rid of any standing water because they can serve as mosquito breeding grounds. Pets? water dishes and bird baths should be changed frequently.
