Higher prevalence of fleas and slightly higher mean intensity of chewing lice were found on birds during the pre-breeding period and there was a significant difference in total prevalence but equal mean intensity on resident and migrating birds.
Synanthropic Birds Influence the Distribution of Borrelia Species: Analysis of Ixodes ricinus Ticks Feeding on Passerine Birds
TLDR
