A warning over bird virus concern if you live in the Kuna area.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has been getting several reports from people spotting dead doves and pigeons in the area, and the testing shows the bird died from a virus.

Residents are advised to stop feeding birds they find on their property for the next few weeks to keep the virus from spreading.

Officials said the virus is a natural phenomenon, but they say this is the first time in recent years they've had an outbreak like this.
