Avian roundworms, from the feces of a wild Red-tailed Hawk. 100x magnification.

Sorry for the bad photo quality; taking a picture off the computer screen hooked up to the microscope.

Description

Again, this is Syngamus trachea/gapeworm. I don't know why the site doesn't have it. The adult form is easily visible in the trachea of nestling birds who are infected. This is an egg about to hatch; he was squirming about.

This was from wild Canada Goose poop so it should count; I ran the fecal, sorry for the terrible quality pic... I had to take a picture of the computer screen hooked up to the scope. This is 100x magnification.

I'll try to convert the good .bmp picture to .jpg so I can use it.

Description

This is Capillaria sp., likely contorta. I don't know why they don't have that option, or any option for these roundworms available. This is 400x magnification.

This is from a fecal I ran this morning on a wild Red-tailed Hawk. It should count because it's an egg of a species I identified this morning and it's from a wild bird. This is a terrible picture because I had to photograph the computer screen hooked up to the microscope; the pics wouldn't upload directly off the scope because I don't think this website supports .bmp images.

Description from Wikipedia

The nematodes /ˈnɛmətoʊdz/ or roundworms constitute the phylum Nematoda. They are a diverse animal phylum inhabiting a very broad range of environments. Nematode species can be difficult to distinguish; and although over 28,000 have been described, of which over 16,000 are parasitic, the total number of nematode species has been estimated to be about 1 million. Unlike cnidarians and flatworms, nematodes have tubular digestive systems with openings at both ends.
