I was at the FINS area at Smith Point and spoke to a ranger about the dead 
Cory's and Manx shearwaters I saw, he said there have also been dead Wilson's 
storm petrels as well.  I told him about the folks in Canada finding avian flu 
in their dead shearwaters, he said that the NPS folks have found the same.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Dead Shearwaters on the Beach

Thank you for posting this Shai.

If you do find a freshly dead Shearwater, or any other unusual wrecked seabird, 
please do consider salvaging it for the AMNH. If you could freeze the specimen 
and record locality and date, we can make arrangements to collect. I recommend 
double bagging.
