genetic characterization of oropharyngeal trichomonad isolates from wild birds indicates that genotype is associated with host species, diet and presence of pathognomonic lesions.oropharyngeal trichomonad isolates of wild birds from spain were studied. a total of 1688 samples (1214 of predator birds and 474 of prey species) from wildlife recovery centres and scientific bird-ringing campaigns were analysed from 2011 to 2013. the overall infection prevalence was 20.3% (11.4% in predator birds and 43.3% in prey species). pathognomonic lesions were present in 26% of the infected birds (57.3% in predator birds and 4.9% in prey species). the most commonly parasitized species w ...201425262786
trichomonosis in eurasian sparrowhawks in the czech republic.pigeon, doves and songbirds are hosts of the parasite trichomonas gallinae (rivolta, 1878), which causes avian trichomonosis. raptors are infected when they digest infected prey. a high percentage of the diet of eurasian sparrowhawk accipiter nisus (linnaeus) is comprised of birds. during the breeding season 2012 and 2013, we clinically tested 298 nestling eurasian sparrowhawks from urban and rural areas of the czech republic for the presence of trichomonads. sparrowhawk nestlings in the urban a ...201526198549
