Assays to detect West Nile virus in dead birds. (1/3)

Using oral swab samples to detect West Nile virus in dead birds, we compared the Rapid Analyte Measurement Platform (RAMP) assay with VecTest and real-time reverse-transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. The sensitivities of RAMP and VecTest for testing corvid species were 91.0% and 82.1%, respectively.  (+info)

Identification of potentially human-pathogenic Enterocytozoon bieneusi genotypes in various birds. (2/3)

Enterocytozoon bieneusi was detected in 24 of 83 samples from birds of the orders Columbiformes, Passeriformes, and Psittaciformes. It was identical to or closely related to the Peru6 genotype, which was previously found in humans in Peru. Thus, various birds can be a significant source of environmental contamination by potentially human-pathogenic E. bieneusi.  (+info)

The emergence and spread of finch trichomonosis in the British Isles. (3/3)

 (+info)

Our surveillance and PME data identified annually recurring seasonal (late summer) epidemic mortality of passerines (predominantly greenfinches and chaffinches) in Britain due to finch trichomonosis since this was first observed in 2006 [12]. By using independent datasets, we identified substantial declines not only in the number of gardens that greenfinches visit (GBW data) but also in the number of individual greenfinches visiting each garden (GBFS data), declines that carry through into the wider breeding population (BBS/CBS data). Large numbers of dead finches were found in a high proportion of the finch trichomonosis incidents. Because we would predict considerable under-reporting of passerine carcasses due to their small body size [23,24], these data indicate large-scale site mortality; consequently, attributing the observed BBS/CBS greenfinch declines to epidemic mortality seems entirely plausible.. While mortality continued to occur in the chaffinch population beyond that reported in ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Nuclear and mitochondrial genes contain similar phylogenetic signal for pigeons and doves (Aves. T2 - Columbiformes). AU - Johnson, Kevin P.. AU - Clayton, Dale H.. PY - 2000/1. Y1 - 2000/1. N2 - Molecular systematic studies generally assume that gene trees are reasonable estimates of species trees. We tested the validity of this assumption in the pigeons and doves (Aves: Columbiformes) by comparing phylogenies derived from nuclear (β-fibrinogen intron 7) and mitochondrial (cytochrome b) genes. Trees derived from the two genes when analyzed separately contained many nodes in common. A partition homogeneity test revealed no significant incongruence between trees derived from the two genes; so, we combined nuclear and mitochondrial data in subsequent phylogenetic analyses. The resulting tree, which was highly resolved and generally well supported, contained a strong biogeographic component. The rate of nucleotide substitution for the nuclear intron was approximately six times ...

Do you have a problem with pigeons?. Some people call pigeons rodents with wings and the reason for this is that they can not only make a big mess of your property, they can also spread germs and diseases.. Pigeons can carry many diseases, such as Cryptococcal Meningitis, Salmonella, Listeria, Viral Encephalitis and E. Coli. When pigeon droppings dry up, they become like a dust substance that can easily be inhaled in the air, creating a high chance of spreading diseases.. This Pigeon Repeller app plays the sounds of various birds of prey that pigeons are extremely scared of. Just play it nearby any pigeons and watch as they scatter and not return for quite some time!.

Individuals should aim to adjust their parental behaviours in order to maximize the success of their offspring but minimize associated costs. Plasticity in parental care is well documented from various bird, mammal and fish species, whereas amphibians were traditionally assumed as being highly instinct-bound. Therefore, little is known about higher cognitive abilities of amphibians, such as strategic planning and behavioural flexibility. Dendrobatid frogs have evolved a remarkable diversity of parental behaviours. The most noticeable of these behaviours is tadpole transport, which is obligatory in almost all species. Nonetheless, there is limited knowledge about spatial and temporal patterns of tadpole transport and the possible existence of behavioural plasticity on the individual level. In this study, we investigated correlates of tadpole transport behaviour in a natural population of the dendrobatid frog Allobates femoralis during five years. Tadpole transport was predominantly observed during
GASTROINTESTINAL DISEASES OF BIRDS. James K Morrisey, DVM, DABVP (Avian). Diseases of the Oral Cavity. The oropharynx is a common site for a variety of lesions in birds. A thorough examination of the oral cavity is usually not possible in the awake parrot, however, a quick visual examination can be performed and the pet sedated if lesions are noted. Other species such as raptors, passerines, and columbiformes are more easily examined while awake. Clinical signs associated with oropharyngeal diseases vary, but may include halitosis, anorexia, inappetance, dysphagia, rubbing of the beak, or gaping.. Plaques or granulomas are a clinical sign common with several diseases including bacterial infections, yeast infections, hypovitaminosis A, parasitic diseases, and viral diseases. Cytology and culture of the lesion will help to determine the cause. Cytological samples may be collected by rubbing a sterile cotton-tipped applicator along the lesion and then rubbing the sample on a clean slide. Several ...

Isolations of genotype IX (gIX) Avian Paramyxovirus Type 1 (APMV-1) from various bird species have been more common recently, with isolates showing variable pathogenicity in different species of poultry. Here we sequenced the genome of a Muscovy duck origin gIX virus strain XBT14, and characterized the virulence and pathogenicity of this isolate in chickens and ducks. The genome sequence of strain XBT14 is 15192 nt in length, containing multiple basic amino acids at the cleavage site of fusion protein. The strain XBT14 shared 91.6% to 91.9% nucleotide identities with early-genotype viruses (such as genotype III and IV), while shared 85.3% to 85.9% nucleotide homologies to later genotype viruses (such as genotype VII). Pathogenicity tests showed that strain XBT14 could cause death in different duck breeds with mortality rate of 44.4% in Muscovy duck, of 25.9% in Sheldrake, and 11.1% in Cherry Valley duck, respectively. Similar mortality discrepancies were also observed in different ducks when ...

Finch trichomonosis, caused by Trichomonas gallinae, emerged in the Canadian Maritime provinces in 2007 and has since caused ongoing mortality in regional purple finch (Carpodacus purpureus) and American goldfinch (Carduelis tristis) populations. Trichomonas gallinae was isolated from (1) finches and rock pigeons (Columbia livia) submitted for post-mortem or live-captured at bird feeding sites experiencing trichomonosis mortality; (2) bird seed at these same sites; and (3) rock pigeons live-captured at known roosts or humanely killed. Isolates were characterized using internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and iron hydrogenase (Fe-hyd) gene sequences. Two distinct ITS types were found. Type A was identical to the UK finch epidemic strain and was isolated from finches and a rock pigeon with trichomonosis; apparently healthy rock pigeons and finches; and bird seed at an outbreak site. Type B was obtained from apparently healthy rock pigeons. Fe-hyd sequencing revealed six distinct subtypes. The ...

After you have reported a dead bird, you will be contacted to determine the condition of the bird and if it is suitable to be picked up for West Nile virus testing. All dead bird reports are used for surveillance purposes and are extremely valuable to us even if the bird is not submitted for testing.. If you have not been contacted within 24 hours of your report, you may safely dispose of the dead bird in your trash.. Although there is no evidence that West Nile virus can be acquired by handling dead birds, it is best not to handle the dead bird with your bare hands. Use gloves, a shovel, or a plastic bag to place the bird in a trash bag for disposal.. Please DO NOT freeze dead birds.. To find out what happens after you report a dead bird, see this link on the California Department of Public health website: http://westnile.ca.gov/wnv_faqs_basics.php?id=88.. ...
Burns Bog is an ombrotrophic peat bog located in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. It is the largest raised peat bog and the largest undeveloped urban land mass on the West Coast of the Americas. Burns Bog was originally 10,000-12,000 acres (4,000-4,900 ha) before development. Currently, only 3,500 hectares (8,600 acres) remain of the bog. Burns Bog is habitat to more than 300 plant and animal species, and 175 bird species. Some of these animals are listed as endangered (i.e. red-listed) or vulnerable (i.e. blue-listed) under the BC Provincial Government Species at-risk designations. The bog is also a major migratory stopover for various bird species on the Pacific Flyway. Burns Bog regulates water as well. The bog prevents flooding, maintains cool water temperatures in nearby rivers, holds water, and releases water in dry conditions. Burns Bog is an estuarine bog since it is situated at the mouth of the Fraser River and next to the Pacific Ocean. It is the only estuarine raised peat bog formed ...
Due to the potential risk that bird feeders and bird baths pose as transmission sites for Trichomonas it is recommended that these are emptied and taken down during outbreaks.

Two key differences between flying and flightless birds are the smaller wing bones of flightless birds[15] and the absent (or greatly reduced) keel on their breastbone. (The keel anchors muscles needed for wing movement.)[2]. Adapting to a cursorial lifestyle causes two inverse morphological changes to occur in the skeleto-muscular system: the pectoral apparatus used to power flight is paedorphically reduced while peramorphosis leads to enlargement of the pelvic girdle for running.[9] Repeated selection for cursorial traits across ratites suggests these adaptions comprise a more efficient use of energy in adulthood.[6] The name "ratite" refers to their flat sternum that is distinct from the typical sternum of flighted birds because it lacks the keel. This structure is the place where flight muscles attach and thus allow for powered flight.[14] However, ratite anatomy presents other primitive characters meant for flight, such as the fusion of wing elements, a cerebellar structure, the presence of ...

In 1734 the English naturalist Eleazar Albin included a picture and a description of the blue-headed quail-dove in his A Natural History of Birds. His drawing was made from a live bird that had been brought to England from the East Indies.[4] When in 1758 the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus updated his Systema Naturae for the tenth edition, he placed the blue-headed quail-dove with all the other pigeons in the genus Columba. Linnaeus included a brief description, coined the binomial name Columba cyanocephala and cited Albin's work.[5] The specific epithet combines the Ancient Greek kuanos meaning "dark blue" and -kephalos meaning "-headed".[6] It is now the only species placed in the genus Starnoenas that was introduced by the French naturalist Charles Lucien Bonaparte in 1838.[7][8] The species is monotypic: no subspecies are recognised.[8]. A taxonomic review of the species' taxonomic history, morphology, anatomy, behavior, distribution, and zoogeography was published in 2016. It found that ...
