Nematoda and Acari were found on or in birds from Estação Ecológica Serra das Araras and region, Mato Grosso, Brazil, 1987-1988, but lice (Phthiraptera) were commoner, showing more females in some cases. In Oscines, numbers of females and males of lice were similar. Different species of lice occupied different sites on the bird, some feeding on feathers and skin scalings and others on blood.
