From sixty-one redwinged blackbirds that were collected and examined between 1962 and 1963, eighteen species of parasites were recovered. Seven species of parasites represent new host records. These are: the trematode Conspicuum icteridorum; the feather mites Strelkoviacarus critesi sp. n., Mesalges johnstoni sp. n., Proctophyllodes egglestoni sp. n., Dermoglyphus sp.; the nasal mite Speleognathus sp.; and the mallophagan Machaerilaemus laticorpus. Cited is a table containing previous published and unpublished records of parasites taken from redwinged blackbirds.
