ResumenThe haemosporidian parasites of birds usually infect wild birds in natural condi'ons and could modulate their health status. The rehabilita'on centres have a remarkable role in avian conserva'on. This study is focused on the influence of rehabilita'on period over the presence of haemosporidian infec'on in the recovered individuals in a rehabilitation centre in Madrid (Central Spain).
The haemosporidian parasites of birds have captured the interest of avian researchers in the last century. They usually infect wild birds in natural conditions, and the parasite presence (or absence) is often used as a general health index of the avian host. Nowadays, the rehabilitation centres have a remarkable role in avian conservation. Among others activities these centres heal a vast number of individuals suffering from different kinds of accidents/problems. More of them are released once they get recovered. This study is focused on the influence of rehabilitation period over the presence of haemosporidian infection in the recovered individuals. We carried out haemosporidian diagnosis on owl in a rehabilitation centre to measure if any parasitemia variation happens during the recovery of birds. We assessed the parasitemia at the beginning and at the end of the rehabilitation stint. Our preliminary results show that infection levels by these blood parasites decrease during the period spent in the rehabilitation centre. A non-specific treatment against haemosporidians would be enough to decrease the parasitemia further
