Abstract : The research study was carried out on helminths of bird, Jungle babbler from taluka Kandiaro district Naushahro Feroze, Sindh during, 2015-16. The total (90) specimens were collected from (24) birds that belong to the genus; Oligorchis Fuhrmann, (1906) were found from terminal part of the large intestine, near the clocal aperture of the bird. Present specimens were observed dissimilar from their habitats which have medium sized body with a maximum width at the level of gravid segments. The worms were relatively delicate, whitish and opaque when alive and the scolex muscular, wider than long. Rostellum provides two rows of 16 hooks and shorter neck followed by series of 288 segments. Gravid segments were greater in number than the mature proglottids and all segments wider than long. Prominent rostellum was along with minute sized sac with suckers muscular and oval in shape, dome shaped larger ovary and vitelline gland oval in shape behind it with the cirrus sac proturated almost in all segments. Tests three to four in numbers, oval in shape, eggs elongated and spindle shaped. The high intensity of infectivity was found during mid of winter and summer season, January and May with less population in June, consequent to the significant differences. It is further suggested that, the other birds of this region should be observed for checking the helminth.
