  • We have screened 91 migratory birds representing 32 species during the autumn of 2003 for the presence of the zoonotic pathogensBorrelia andChlamydophila. Using polymerase chain reaction (PCR),B. burgdorferi sensu stricto was detected in cloacal swabs and, in two causes, also in throat swabs in 8 individuals (8.7 %) representing 7 birds species;B. garinii andB. afzelii were not detected.C. psittaci was detected only in cloacal swabs; 6 birds (6.6 %) from four species were found to be positive… CONTINUE READING
