An adult, female common buzzard (Buteo buteo) with paraplegia due to shooting wound on the sacral region was diagnosed with Leucocytozoon toddi, Haemoproteus elani, and Histomonas meleagridis. This is the first report of simultaneous naturally occurring Leucocytozoon toddi, Haemoproteus elani, and Histomonas meleagridis identification in a buzzard.

    The article discusses research on a case of comminuted distal tarsometatarsal fracture in a common buzzard or Buteo buteo. It is noted that avian long bones have thin cortices and contain plenty of calcium, making them more brittle and more susceptible to injuries. The traditional methods of...
