Abstract

Cloacal and tracheal swabbings were obtained from several species of migratory waterfowl that had been shot by hunters in Delaware and Maryland. From 159 birds sampled, 15 isolations were made of viruses that would agglutinate chicken red blood cells. Four of the isolants were identified as type-A influenza virus, and nine as lentogenic Newcastle disease virus; two could not be identified.
