Investigations of birds trapped at the Ottenby Bird Station on the island of eland in the Baltic Sea demonstrated that ticks are carried by numerous bird species, particularly Passeriformes. The resident bird population as well as birds undertaking migration were found to be infested. So far among birds undertaking long-range migration infestation was made probable only for individuals coming in from the south in spring. The tick species most commonly encountered was Ixodes ricinus, while I… 

Tables from this paper

Tick infestation in birds and prevalence of pathogens in ticks collected from different places in Germany
TLDR
Tick infestation of birds in Germany was examined and the screening of ticks and birds for viral pathogens with broad range PCR-assays was tested and the use as an “early warning system” is discussed.
Potential Impact of Wildlife on the Tropical Bont Tick Eradication Program in the Caribbean a
TLDR
The potential for interisland dissemination of ticks by cattle egrets, as well as by other means, substantiates the need for a region-wide eradication program.
The role of European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris L.) in the dissemination of ticks and tick-borne pathogens in Germany
TLDR
Examination of a suburban garden used as a winter roosting site for the European starling revealed an extremely high density of Ixodes ricinus nymphs and adults and adults of up to ca.
Prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato-infected ticks on migrating birds
TLDR
The notion that birds are partly responsible for the heterogeneous distribution of Lyme disease Borrelia spirochetes in Europe is supported.
Changes in the geographical distribution and abundance of the tick Ixodes ricinus during the past 30 years in Sweden
TLDR
Ixodes ricinus has expanded its range in North Sweden and has become distinctly more abundant in Central and South Sweden during the last three decades, however, in the northern mountain region I. ricinus is still absent.
Seasonal occurrence of Ixodes ricinus (Acari) in vegetation and on small mammals in southern Sweden
TLDR
The autumn peak seems similar to that found in other European countries, but the timing of the spring peak differs, and weather, influencing development rates, seems to be the main agent behind these differences.
Ectoparasites of Birds from a Rice Field in Samarahan Division, Sarawa
TLDR
Estimated species composition of ectoparasites from birds in a rice field at Kuap Village, Samarahan, Sarawak found the most common bird species found was the Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla), which has the potential in transmitting zoonotic diseases to farmers working at the rice fields.
An annotated checklist of the ticks (Acari: Ixodida) of Germany
TLDR
A checklist of the species currently known to occur in Germany, summarized under the endemic species, includes general distribution, hosts, and basic ecology, as well as each species' medical and veterinary significance.
AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF PATHOGENIC MICROORGANISMS ASSOCIATED WITH MIGRATORY BIRDS
The potential for transport and dissemination of certain pathogenic microorganisms by migratory birds is of concern. Migratory birds might be involved in dispersal of microorganisms as their

Ticks (Ixodidae) on birds migrating from Europe and Asia to Africa 1959-61.
TLDR
Over 20 strains of pathogenic viruses were isolated from these birds and their ticks in Egypt in the 1961 fall migration period, causing concern for the correct identification of bird hosts, of immature stages of ticks and of viruses.
Ticks (Ixodoidea) on birds migrating from Africa to Europe and Asia.
TLDR
The period of attachment of immature stages of rufipes to their host is sufficient to suggest that many of these ticks are carried some distance into Europe and Asia.
TICKS (IXODOIDEA) OF MEDICAL AND VETERINARY INTEREST FROM BIRDS IN THE BRITISH ISLES.
TLDR
A summary of records of ticks collected from resident and migratory birds at bird observatories around the British Isles is presented, and the extent to which both birds and the ticks they carry have been shown to be infected with micro-organisms pathogenic to man and animals is shown.
The Seasonal and Annual Incidence of the Sheep Tick, Ixodes ricinus , in Britain
TLDR
Serial examinations of the degree of infestation of thirty-five flocks during a nine-year period in Argyllshire, Perthshire, Selkirk and Northumberland, showed that tick incidence is greatest in spring and decreases markedly in early summer, and the seasonal activity of ticks was found to be related to the air temperature.
Ticks from European-Asiatic Birds Migrating through Egypt into Africa
From 321 of 7381 birds (28 species), 504 immature European-Asiatic ticks were collected: Ixodes frontalis, Haemaphysalis punctata, Haemaphysalis sulcata, Hyalomma spp. (probably mostly m.

It is thus obvious that the screening of cow sera for LI antibodies provides reliable information as to endemic regions of RSSE-LI-like viruses.

Perusal of the works of authors of faunistic papers and books in the English language usually reveals that the author or authors have had the most extraordinary opportunities and enviable facilities afforded them for the specific research reported on, by the research agencies of the U.S. Navy, for the widest variety of research projects.
