Abstract: Necropsy of specimens of 10 species of birds from South Bass Island, Ottawa County, Ohio, yielded 15 species of helminth parasites. New host and geographic records resulting from this study include Brachylaemus euphonae from the Cedar Waxwing, Bombycilla cedrorum; Apophallus brevis and Tetrameres crami from the Sora Rail, Porzana Carolina; and Paruterina reynoldsi from the Slate-colored Junco, Junco h. hyemalis. Mosesia chordeilesia, Parabascus imanensis, Dilepis undula, Dispharynx nasuta, and Syngamus trachea are recorded for the first time from the Red-headed Woodpecker, Melanerpes e. erythrocephalus. Brachylaemus euphonae and Parabascus imanensis are reported for the first time from any North American host.
