Abstract

Sixteen species of passerine birds captured during a 2.5 yr period in Central Spain were examined for hematozoa. Haemoproteus spp., Leucocytozoon spp., Trypanosoma spp., Plasmodium spp., and microfilariae were observed. The most prevalent species were in the genus Leucocytozoon. The majority of the records are new for Spain and some represent new host records. More than one-half of the birds examined were infected with at least one parasite species. These records are similar to those reported from other areas in northern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula.
