Three dead crows have tested positive for West Nile virus in the South Bay, the first such finds of the season.

The birds were found in Los Altos, San Jose and Monte Sereno in the past ten days.

There have been no human cases so far, but because dead birds can be an early warning system, people are encouraged to call the West Nile Hotline at 1-877-WNV-BIRD if they find one.
