Abstract: A survey of the internal parasites present in 21 species of birds in the Diamond Head area on Oahu was conducted during 1972-1973. A total of 121 birds were examined for protozoa and helminth infections. Twenty individuals were infected with protozoa and 40 with helminths. Forty of these birds were also examined for internal mites; seven were infected. Each type of parasite is discussed and its history in Hawaii. First records of parasites in Hawaii include Syngamus trachea taken from a Red-crested Cardinal, Capillaria sp. from a Cordon-bleu, Orange-cheeked Waxbill, and two Cardinals: Plagiorhynchus charadrii from a Golden Plover; Mediorhynchus orientalis from a Common Mynah, Cardinal, and two Red-crested Cardinals; and Sternostoma tracheacol from a Cordon-bleu and Red-eared Waxbill.
