The reported prevalence of salmonellosis in wild birds is relatively low, though the number of species of birds reported as having the disease or being carriers of the organism is increasing (Faddoul et al., 1966, Avian Dis. 10: 89- 94). The course of the disease in birds ranges from acute to chronic. Affected birds may recover, become carriers of the organism and periodically shed it into the environment. This paper reports a case of chronic, fatal salmonellosis in an eared grebe.
