Ornithosis

The disease in nonpsittacine birds (domestic fowl, ducks, pigeons, turkeys, and many wild birds) caused by Chamydophila psittaci A zoonoisis. Some apply the term ornithosis to any bird affted by chlamydiosis, though many prefer psitacosis for psittacine birds (parrot, lovebirds, parakeet).
