Abstract: The prevalence of Anaplasma phagocytophilum was studied in ticks collected on birds in Lithuania during spring of 2007 and autumn of 2008. A total 60 ticks were collected from 36 birds caught at Ventes Ragas Ornithological Station. For detection of A. phagocytophilum DNA in ticks were used two pair of primers: very sensitive EHR521/747 (for 16S rRNA gene), but possible detected also other Rickettsiales species, and species- specific ApMSP2f/r (for msp2 gene). A. phagocytophilum infection wasn’t detected in ticks from birds, but other rickettsial infection was detected in 43.3% (26/60) of ticks from Acrocephalus schoenobaenus, A. scirpaceus, Erithacus rubecula, Luscinia luscinia, Parus major, Phylloscopus trochilus, Sylvia communis and Turdus philomelos birds in Lithuania
