Abstract

During 1957, 1958, and 1959, blood smears from 568 birds were examined. Ninety-nine (17.25%) of these birds were found to harbor haemosporidian parasites. Four species of birds harbored Plasmodium, four species were infected with Leucocytozoon, and five species with Haemoproteus. Trypanosomes and microfilariae were observed in two species.
