Figure 2. Spatial and temporal distribution of H5 clade 126.96.36.199 influenza A virus outbreaks among wild birds and poultry across North America. A) Spatial distribution of H5 clade 188.8.131.52 influenza A virus outbreaks in wild birds (triangles) and poultry (circles) across North America, color-coded by subtype, relative to poultry density. The location of mallards from Anchorage, Alaska, based on resighting of banded birds, is indicated. B) Temporal distribution of H5 clade 184.108.40.206 influenza A virus detections during the course of the outbreaks relative to the migration of mallards banded in Anchorage.
