Abstract

Ten Canada geese (Branta canadensis), 24 snow geese (Chen caendescens) and 22 white-fronted geese (Anser alhifrons) from coastal Texas (USA) were examined for helminths. Three cestode, seven nematode, and three trematode species were collected. Gizzard nematodes (Amidostomum anseris, A. spatulatum and Epomidiostomum crami) infected 53 of 54 birds. Gross lesions were not attributed to helminth infections and the host population does not appear to be impaired by them.
