Ectoparasites of the Pelagic Cormorant, Phalacrocorax pelagicus Pallas, collected from St. Paul Island, Alaska, included two species of insects and five species of acarines. Astigmatid mites, Neottialges pelagicus OConnor and Scutomegninia sp. (undescribed), were the most abundant group of ectoparasites. The majority of N. pelagicus were collected from the breast and belly, whereas a feather mite, Scutomegninia sp. (undescribed), was recovered almost exclusively from the wings. Two species of… 
Community structure of arthropod ectoparasites on Alaskan seabirds
Kittiwakes usually supported more diverse communities of ectoparasites than did murres, probably because of differences in nesting and foraging behavior.

In the years 2018 and 2019, 4 marine animal rehabilitation centers located in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil received live birds and carcasses of Sula leucogaster, and lice of 2 different species were collected.
Composition and Distribution on a Host of Avian Lice of White Storks in North-Eastern Algeria
The diversity and spatial distribution of ectoparasites of a large colony of white stork Ciconia ciconia at Dréan, in north-eastern Algeria, were investigated during two consecutive breeding seasons.
Diversity and Distribution of Avian Lice on Greater Flamingo Chicks (Phoenicopterus Roseus) in Algeria
Results from the first records for the Greater Flamingo in North Africa, indicate that they were infested by the following louse species: Colpocephalum heterosoma Piaget and Triniton femoratumPiaget (Menoponidae); Anaticola phoenicopteri (Coinde) and Anatoecus pygaspis Nitzsch (Philopteridae).
Population trends in Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla colonies in relation to tick infestation
It is suggested that this correlation reveals a cause-and-effect relationship between Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla colony population trends and local levels of tick infestation in chicks and that this correlations highlights the potential effect of parasites on their host population.

Chewing lice species (Phthiraptera) found on a European Shag(Phalacrocorax aristotelis) in Turkey: new records of a genus and twospecies for the Turkish fauna of Phthiraptera
To date, two louse species have been described on the European Shag: Eidmanniella pellucida (Rudow, 1869) and Pectinopygus brevicornis (Denny, 1842).
