In that population, 85% of nestling Cooper's hawks had T gallinae
in their oral cavity, compared to only 1% of breeding-age hawks.
Band-tailed Pigeons in California and elsewhere are known to have significant mortality due to infections of Trichomonas gallinae
(Stabler and Braun 1975, 1979; Cole 1999).
By using wet-mount microscopy, we were able to confirm Trichomonas gallinae
in 22% (4/18) of the sampled animals.
This paper describes the clinical signs and histopathologic findings associated with an emergent disease associated with Trichomonas gallinae
infections in free-ranging house finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) in California.
For 3 years, cultures of oropharyngeal samples from 612 wild and domestic pigeons (Columba livia) and 102 birds of prey from 15 different species were made in an attempt to determine the prevalence of T gallinae
