Tell him avian means bird. The avian flu is called that BECAUSE birds caught it first.

Bird flu-actually starts in China and is passed from birds to humans. Now granted he's still incorrect-but the virus starts within a certain region of China-every year there is a new strain-and because the birds migrate and it's passed from birds to humans-hence the term "avian flu"

I get you were saying a bird haven, and not flu haven... I don't get the point of this post. He seems to have been attempting a joke, you didn't get that and disagreed it wasn't a type of flu..
