January 23, 2019 (Salton Sea) -- Thousands of water birds died of an avian cholera outbreak at the south end of the Salton Sea between Jan. 8-17.
 
“Outbreaks like this one occur annually as a result of birds flocking closely together during migration,” says California Fish and Wildlife spokesman Jordan Traverso.
