Abstract: An intestinal disease in pigeons (Columba livia) from the Canary Islands characterized by diarrhea and body weight loss is described. Intestinal cryptosporidiosis was identified in three young pigeons. Cryptosporidia were associated with hyperplasia of the intestinal crypts and moderate inflammatory infiltration in lamina propria. This is the first report of cryptosporidiosis in pigeons.
