DETAILS: A hawk in Virginia has been recorded as the first bird in North America carrying the invasive Asian longhorned tick. In September, the bird was brought to the Blue Ridge Wildlife. It was exhibiting West Nile virus symptoms and had ticks around his eyes. The following day, the center was notified that the hawk, which it had just released, was the first bird in North America to be found carrying an Asian longhorned tick. Nicknamed the "cattle tick", it has been known to carry pathogens impacting humans and animals.
