Abstract

Two species of blood protozoans were identified from blood smears collected from 15 specimens of the Chimango caracara ( Milvago chimango check for this species in other resources ) on Isla Grande de Chiloé in southern Chile. These included Leucocytozoon toddi check for this species in other resources in 13 birds, including all 5 of the 4-6 week old nestlings examined, and 8 of the subadults or adults. One of the nestlings also had a dual infection of L. toddi and Haemoproteus tinnunculi check for this species in other resources . These are the first reports of blood parasites from M. chimango.
