Abstract
The present study was done to show the prevalence of parasitic infection in some species of wild birds and describe the morphology of collected parasites.in this study 7 Cattle egret (Bubulucus ibis), 16 Moorhen (Gallinula ch. Choloropus), 6 migrant quail (coturnix coturnix coturnix),1 King fisher ( Alcedo atthis) and 8 House sparrow (Passer domesticus) were examined for parasitic infection from March 2014 to June 2015. After parasitological examination to gastrointestinal tract of each bird found 3 (18.75 %) out of 16 moorhen infected by Cyclocelum microstomum, 5 (71.42 %) out of 7 cattle egret infected by Desportesius invaginatus, 6 ( 85.71 %) out of 7 cattle egret infected by Apatemon gracilis, 2 (33.3 %) out of 6 Migrant quail infected by Heterakis gallinurm and Spiniglans microsoma. and 3 (37.5 %) out of 8 house sparrow infected by Cyathocotyle sp.1 (12.5 %) out of 8 house sparrow infected by Monopylidium musculosum. the highest infection found in cattle egret (100%) but low infection occur in king fisher 0%.

Key words: trematode- cestode- nematode- wild birds
