New host records are recorded for Ptilonyssus bombycillae from the Bohemian Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus); P. icteridius from the Western Meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta); P. melissae from the Gray-crowned Rosy Finch (Leucosticte tephrocotis), Pine Grosbeak (Pinicola enucleator) and House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus); P. morofskyi from the Gray-headed Junco (Junco caniceps), White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys), Lark Bunting (Calamospiza melanocorys), Chestnut-collared Longspur (Calcarius ornatus) and Wilson's Warbler (Wilsonia pusilla); P. nitzschi from the Poor-will (Phalaenoptilus nuttallii); P. pari from the Mountain Chickadee (Parus gambeli); P. perisorei from the Scrub Jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens); P. sairae from the Gray-headed Junco (Junco caniceps), Green-tailed Towhee (Chlorura chlorura), Blue Grosbeak (Guiraca caerulea) and Brewer's Blackbird (Euphagus cynocephalus); Sternostoma boydi from the California Gull (Larus californicus) and Western Gull (Larus occidentalis); Turbinoptes strandtmanni from the California Gull (Larus calif ornicus).
