We report reoccurrence of highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N2) virus clade 188.8.131.52 in a wild mallard in Alaska, USA, in August 2016. Identification of this virus in a migratory species confirms low-frequency persistence in North America and the potential for re-dissemination of the virus during the 2016 fall migration.
