Abstract

An injured mature bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) was submitted for treatment of gunshot wounds. Parasites resembling Plasmodium polare were detected in the peripheral blood during routine examination. The eagle died from a bacteremia secondary to necrotizing osteomyelitis. Due to the severity of the eagle's wounds, it was impossible to assess the impact of Plasmodium on the deterioration of the eagle's condition.
