Abstract

On the examination of a male kestrel (Falco tinnunculus), which was captured in Istanbul in June of 2011, three lice were collected. The lice were examined microscopically and two species of chewing lice (Colpocephalum subzerafae and Laemobothrion tinnunculi) were identified. All of the lice were male. These species are recorded for the first time from Turkey.
