Abstract: A study was done to determine the helminth fauna of the Red-winged Blackbird, Agelaius phoeniceus, and the Common Grackle, Quiscalus quiscula, from northwestern Ohio. Thirty adult Redwings and 19 adult Grackles were examined. Plagiorchis nobeli and Anonchotaenia quiscali were found in Redwings, the later species for the first time. Echinostoma revolutum, Porrocaecum ensicaudatum, Syngamus trachea, and Capillaria ovopunctata were recovered from Grackles. Conspicuum icteridorum, Dispharynx pipilonis, and Prosthorhynchus formosus were recovered from both hosts. Several new host records are reported.
