Little is known concerning the helminths parasitic in several major groups of the North American avifauna. This appears to be particularly true of the parasites of owls. Over the past few years the writer has had the opportunity of examining a fairly large series of these birds, and they have been found to be infected with several helminths of unusual interest (Chandler and Rausch, 1947).
