Abstract

In July 2012 a male Common Buzzard (Bute obuteo) from the Department of Environment of East Azerbaijan was sent to the Parasitology Laboratory at the School of Specialized Sciences of Veterinary Medicine, Science and Research Unit, Tehran Islamic Azad University. Gastrointestinal parasites were isolated and sent to the Iranian National Parasitology Museum in order to specify the diagnosis. It was determined that the bird was infected with the acanthocephalan Centrorhynchu saluconis. This is the first report of Common Buzzard infestation with this parasite in Iran.
