Abstract

An outbreak of Type C botulism in waterbirds was investigated at Lake Lalbert in northwestern Victoria, Australia. Total losses were estimated at 1,500 birds, with 80% of affected birds being grey teal (Anas gibberifrons). The outbreak was associated with a falling water level, and extensive decomposition of plant material.
