      Blood smear: Giemsa-stained blood smear from a bird infected with Plasmodium relictum. The intracellular parasites (arrows) develop within nucleated red blood cells and eventually destroy their host cells, causing severe anemia during acute stages of the infection.

The oocysts contain densely packed, long slender sporozoites (arrows) that are released at maturation and invade the salivary glands of the insect. The sporozoites are capable of infecting another bird with malaria when the mosquito takes another blood meal. (Photo: U.S. Geological Survey - Biological Resources Division) - Click for full size
