Abstract

Hematozoa are reported from 1,361 members of the Passeriformes representing 101 species and 22 families, all from Colorado. Some parasitemia was observed in 693 birds (51%). The parasites and their incidences were: Plasmodium (all species), 43 (3%); Haemoproteus, 229 (17%); Leucocytozoon, 273 (20%); Trypanosoma, 401 (29%); Haemogregarines sensu lato (Hepatozoon and Lankesterella), 40 (2.9%); microfilaria, 174 (13%). Seventy-one new host-parasite associations were encountered.
