Circular external fixator placement for repair of an open distal tarsometatarsal fracture in an African sacred ibis (Threskiornis
The Nile Valley's sacred ibis (Threskiornis
aethiopica) is a wading bird with a long and distinctively downcurved, pencil-thin beak.
Some of the most important are the pelicans (Pelecanus); the Threskiornithidae, such as the glossy ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) and the ibises (Threskiornis
, Eudocimus); many ardeids; and a few birds of prey, such as the marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus) and snail kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis).
Isolation of a new Chlamydia species from the feral sacred ibis (Threskiornis
aethiopicus): Chlamydia ibidis.
These populations are: Growling Grass Frog; migratory shorebirds; five waterfowl guilds (dabbling ducks, filter-feeding ducks, diving ducks, grazing waterfowl and grebes); Pied Cormorant Phalacrocorax varius; and Straw-necked Ibis Threskiornis
Phylogenetic evidence pointed to wild birds, eg, African sacred ibis (Threskiornis
aethiopicus), in the dissemination of H7N1 LPAI to ostriches in the Eastern and Western Cape provinces during 2012, in separate incidents that could not be epidemiologically linked.
An adult male African sacred ibis (Threskiornis
aethiopicus) was diagnosed with an open right distal tarsometatarsal fracture on physical examination and radiographs.
