First report of Thelazia sp. from a captive Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana) in Japan. (1/871)

Nematodes of the genus Thelazia were recovered from the cornea and inferior conjunctival sac of an immature Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana). The bird hatched and reared at the Toyooka Oriental White Stork Breeding Center, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, but died of chlamydiosis. There were neither gross nor histopathologic ophthalmic lesions. The eye worm from a bird is believed to be first reported in Japan. As regarding reintroduction plan for the Oriental white stork, control measures for prevent further infection with the eye worm will be needed.  (+info)

Ultrastructure of surface components of Streptococcus gallolytics (S. bovis) strains of differing virulence isolated from pigeons. (2/871)

Virulence of Streptococcus gallolyticus (S. bovis) strains isolated from pigeons is associated with the presence of the extracellular proteins A, T1, T2 and T3. Based on the presence or absence of these proteins, six supernatant-phenotypes are distinguished. Experimental infection studies have indicated that strains belonging to the A-T1, A+T1, A+T2 and A+T3 groups are highly virulent for pigeons, strains belonging to the A-T3 groups are moderately virulent and A-T2 strains are of low virulence. In this study the surface structure of 15 pigeon S. gallolyticus strains representing high, moderate and low virulence supernatant-phenotypes was examined by electron microscopy. The presence of capsular material was determined by transmission electron microscopy after polycationic ferritin labelling and immunostabilization. Capsules from cells labelled with polycationic ferritin were usually thicker than those from cells exposed to antiserum. The capsule of the virulent strains had a regular, continuous appearance whilst irregularity of the capsule was a characteristic of the low virulence A-T2 strains. Negative staining revealed the presence of fimbriae in all strains belonging to the high virulence A-T1, A+T1, A+T2 and A+T3 supernatant groups and in one strain of the moderately virulent A-T3 group. The fimbriae were thin, flexible structures with a diameter of approximately 3-4 nm and a length of up to 700 nm. Fimbriae as described above were absent in two other A-T3 strains examined and in the low virulence A-T2 strains. Results from this study indicate that morphological differences in surface structure exist among virulent and low virulence pigeon S. gallolyticus strains, and that the capsule and/or fimbriae are possibly involved in virulence.  (+info)

Retinal TUNEL-positive cells and high glutamate levels in vitreous humor of mutant quail with a glaucoma-like disorder. (3/871)

PURPOSE: To investigate whether retinal cell death observed in an avian glaucoma-like disorder occurs by apoptosis and whether an increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentration in the vitreous humor is associated temporally with cell death in the retina. METHODS: Presumptive retinal apoptotic nuclei were identified by histochemical detection of DNA fragmentation (by TdT-dUTP terminal nick-end labeling [TUNEL]), and vitreal concentrations of glutamate and several other amino acids were determined by high-pressure liquid chromatography with fluorometric detection in the al mutant quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) in which a glaucoma-like disorder develops spontaneously. RESULTS: TUNEL-labeled nuclei were located mostly in the ganglion cell layer (GCL) in the retina of mutant quails 3 months after hatching. However, labeled nuclei were also observed in the inner and outer nuclear layers. At 7 months, most TUNEL-positive nuclei were detected in the inner nuclear layer, whereas labeled cells in the GCL were reduced in number. No TUNEL-labeled nuclei were detected in the retina of control quails at any age. Vitreal concentrations of glutamate and aspartate were significantly increased in 1-month-old mutant quails compared with control animals. Concentrations decreased at 3 months, and no significant differences were observed between strains at 7 months. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive apoptotic cell death is detected from 3 months after hatching in mutant quails and is not restricted to retinal ganglion cells. Cell death appears just after a significant increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentrations in the vitreous humor, suggesting a correlation between both events.  (+info)

In situ detection of the Clostridium botulinum type C1 toxin gene in wetland sediments with a nested PCR assay. (4/871)

A nested PCR was developed for detection of the Clostridium botulinum type C1 toxin gene in sediments collected from wetlands where avian botulism outbreaks had or had not occurred. The C1 toxin gene was detected in 16 of 18 sites, demonstrating both the ubiquitous distribution of C. botulinum type C in wetland sediments and the sensitivity of the detection assay.  (+info)

Nocardia nova causing pulmonary nocardiosis of black crakes (Limnocorax flavirostra). (5/871)

Natural nocardial infection has been reported in many different species including mammals and fish, but reports in birds remain uncommon. Eight juvenile Black Crakes (Limnocoraxflavirostra) died unexpectedly at the Basle Zoo. Necropsy revealed disseminated white, firm nodules, 1-3 mm in diameter, throughout the lung parenchyma. Histologically, the lungs contained multiple, often confluent granulomas with central necrosis. Delicate, gram-positive, 0.5- to 1.0-microm-wide, branching, occasionally beaded, filamentous organisms were visible in necrotic centers. These organisms were acid fast when stained with Fite-Faraco. No histologic lesions were seen in other organs. Nocardia nova was isolated from liver, spleen, kidney, and lung. Granulomatous and necrotizing nocardial pneumonia with agonal septicemia was diagnosed, suggesting an aerogenous infection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported epizootic outbreak of nocardiosis in birds, which is additionally unusual because it was caused by N. nova.  (+info)

Observed differences in virulence-associated phenotypes between a human clinical isolate and a veterinary isolate of Mycobacterium avium. (6/871)

Mycobacterium avium, the most common opportunistic pathogen in patients with AIDS, is frequently isolated from a variety of environmental sources, but rarely can these environmental isolates be epidemiologically linked with isolates known to cause human disease. Using a number of in vitro tissue culture assays, we found significant pathogenic differences between a serotype 4 human clinical M. avium isolate and a serotype 2 veterinary isolate. Cell association of the patient strain with a human intestinal cell line was 1.7 times that of the veterinary strain. Growth of this clinical strain in human peripheral blood mononuclear cell-derived macrophages increased from 12-fold higher than that of the veterinary isolate after 2 days to 200-fold higher after 4 days. By the conclusion of each experiment, lysis of all examined host cell types and accumulation of cell debris were observed in infections with the human isolate, but monolayers remained relatively intact in the presence of the animal isolate. The two strains also differed in the ability to stimulate human immunodeficiency virus replication in coinfected host cells, with p24 antigen levels after 6 days threefold higher in the cells coinfected with the clinical strain than in those infected with the veterinary strain. If the genetic differences responsible for the phenotypes observed in these assays can be identified and characterized, it may be possible to determine which M. avium strains in the environment are potential human pathogens.  (+info)

Eastern equine encephalitis virus in birds: relative competence of European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris). (7/871)

To determine whether eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus infection in starlings may be more fulminant than in various native candidate reservoir birds, we compared their respective intensities and durations of viremia. Viremias are more intense and longer lasting in starlings than in robins and other birds. Starlings frequently die as their viremia begins to wane; other birds generally survive. Various Aedes as well as Culiseta melanura mosquitoes can acquire EEE viral infection from infected starlings under laboratory conditions. The reservoir competence of a bird is described as the product of infectiousness (proportion of feeding mosquitoes that become infected) and the duration of infectious viremia. Although starlings are not originally native where EEE is enzootic, a starling can infect about three times as many mosquitoes as can a robin.  (+info)

Observations on pigeon circovirus infection in Ontario. (8/871)

Subclinical pigeon circovirus infection was diagnosed in 1-day-old to 6-week-old birds from a loft with no history of clinical disease. Pigeons from other lofts presented with various illnesses and were found at necropsy to be concurrently infected with pigeon circovirus.  (+info)

Thats actually pretty funny because I remember this one time I went on a family vacation and on this family vacation while being in San Francisco I took a steady picture of a seagull that was simply standing still. And right before I took the picture Mr. Seagull here decided to spread its wings and take off! But... Little did the bird know I took probably the nicest picture in the world of the seagull in mid air with wings completely expanded in mid flight. Sounds cool ey?? :) ...

One of the most intelligent birds ever studied, the African grey parrot has an amazing ability to imitate human speech and precisely mimic sounds within the environment (for example, ringtones and doorbells). African grey parrots can be affectionate, entertaining, and rewarding companion animals; however, owners must be knowledgeable and conscientious to fully enjoy the qualities of African grey parrots. These birds prefer a routine schedule and a stable environment within their enclosure, and they require a substantial amount of interactive time with their owners to develop a trusting, enjoyable relationship. Therefore, African greys may not be appropriate for people who work odd hours, travel frequently, or spend a substantial amount of time away from home.. Read More ...

For two birds that are surprisingly far apart on the family tree, American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos) and common ravens (Corvus corax) can be awfully hard to distinguish, especially if you rarely see both together. But with the right tools and a little practice you can most certainly develop the skill. Fortunately, there are many different…
American crows have an unusual social system - they are cooperative breeders. This means that they may stay close to the place where they were born to help raise young and defend the area against predators. It is not well understood why these offspring do not obtain mates and raise their own families, but pairs with such helpers do not appear to be more successful at fledging offspring than those without helpers. Family members often preen each other (allopreening).. Most American crows defend large all-purpose territories. All members of the family assist in chasing predators away from the territory. Some individuals may remain on their territories during the winter, even if they participate in winter roosts or large flocks searching for food. Winter roosting behavior begins in autumn and peaks in mid-winter. Large numbers of crows, from tens to hundreds of thousands, will assemble in the late afternoon hours in an area with large trees. Often the flock will move from this area to a final ...

In order to study how this works, the team videotaped Cosmo, a female, in four distinct social contexts. In the first context, Craige began recording Cosmo and left her house for the duration of the session. In the second, Craige sat in the room with Cosmo and interacted with her as normal. The third saw Craige in an adjacent room interacting with Cosmo normally by voice. Finally, the fourth context saw Craige and Colbert-White in the same room with Cosmo but reading to each other from online blog entries to simulate dialog and ignoring Cosmo (not interacting with her, making eye contact or any gesturing toward her).. We split each transcription into separate text files according to the speaker, said Colbert-White. We then compiled the Cosmo text files to create one large Cosmo corpus that could be divided according to the social context.. The results showed that Cosmos spontaneous vocal production changed significantly across the four social situations. They also indicated that Cosmos ...
As an equine surgeon and clinical researcher with a focus on the equine head, it is readily apparent that many diseases involve vasculature. Through a research project aimed at treatment of orosinus fistula, we became particularly interested in the vascular anatomy of the equine oral cavity. Information regarding vasculature anatomy beyond the major vessels was limited. We learnt of Dr. Scott Echols and his research into terminal vascular contrast agents through our mutual association with Epical Medical Imaging. Scott had a wealth of knowledge regarding the study of vasculature and we quickly began to collaborate on a project to use BriteVu in the horse. He was able to guide us in developing protocols and traveled to be on site to oversee the first ever perfusion trial in the horse using BriteVu. The BriteVu study was an outstanding success delivering amazing vascular detail that we desired for our research. Scott was instrumental to our success, guiding us in the procedure, reviewing CT ...
The Canberra Cockatoos dominated the 2013 SILVA National Orienteering League, winning three out of four team titles and three individual titles.. The closest team competition was the senior womens. The Cockatoos and defending champions, the Victorian Nuggets, went into the seasons final race level. The Nuggets had a four-minute lead going into the final leg and were still in front at the spectator control, but, as with last year, the title came down to the last few controls of the last race. Jo Allison slipped through for the Cockatoos when Kathryn Preston made a late mistake, and while Preston did her best to come back over the last few controls she fell 50 metres short. A good final week saw the Tassie Foresters in third place.. The Cockatoos senior men led by only a point going into the seasons final week, but always looked to have something in hand, with the return of Dave Shepherd from injury adding depth to an already strong team. The Nuggets still had a mathematical chance of winning ...
Although ornithologists find the concept of a partridge sitting in a pear tree pretty ridiculous (they are not passerines - perching birds - but rather denizens of open country), but to my mind there are excellent culinary reasons to associate these little game birds with Christmas . . .
Granted, not every small farm has a parrot on the premises. In fact, most of them probably dont. But part of our rural life includes a parrot in the house.. If youre not familiar with them, parrots are intelligent creatures. Some breeds are smarter than others, and some can talk more than others. And like every other set of creatures in this world, the intelligence and abilities varies within the breed as well.. I dont know how our little parrot would rank on the intelligence scale. As an African Grey parrot, her breed is supposed to have something like the intelligence of a 5-year-old, and the emotions of a 2-year-old. This adds up to a smart little feathered being that has a huge capacity to get into a world of trouble!. Now we could keep her locked in her cage at all times and avoid some of that trouble, but that would be like locking your kindergardener in the same room 24/7.

A key flaw in the approvals process under current national environment laws is the unwillingness to consider the cumulative impact of a number of individual projects on a population of threatened species across a geographic area.. Professor Rod Heinsohn from ANUs Fenner School of Environment and Society is currently leading research into the population dynamics of palm cockatoos throughout Cape York. Based on new and ongoing research into population interactions across the Capes sub-regions, he believes the threats are understated.. Without robust bioregional planning, the identification and protection of critical habitat, and more effective environmental laws, the cumulative impacts are likely to cause a significant decline in palm cockatoo numbers. We risk destroying what ecologists call source populations. Once gone, recovery of any species is challenging, costly, and never guaranteed.. If we continue to assess each mining proposal in a piecemeal way, we will be blind to the long-term ...

The subjects of this experiment were eight (four males and four females) sexually mature hand-raised western scrub-jays that had prior experience with the cache-recovery paradigm. The birds were housed in pairs in cages measuring 2 m wide × 1 m deep × 1 m high, and were maintained inside on a 12 L : 12 D cycle on a maintenance diet supplemented with nuts, seeds, dog biscuits, various fruits, wax worms and meal worms. The maintenance diet was removed from the home cage 2 h before an experimental trial, ensuring that the jays were mildly hungry during caching.
