A necropsy procedure for sampling disease in wild birds
This paper presents a necropsy procedure for examining small wild birds, designed to be used by investigators without experience in avian pathology. It gives instructions on how to conduct a postmortem examination, lists the needed equipment, tells what parts of a bird to save when a disorder in encountered, and lists possible diseases which each may signify. This procedure would enable ornithologists to include parasites and diseases in their investigations of avian populations.
