Haemoproteus columbae is the most common blood parasite of pigeons. The vector of H. columbae is a hippoboscid fly that named Pseudolynchia canariensis. Both H. columbae and P. canariensis are widely distributed in the world, particularly in warm and temperate climates. This parasite causes weakness, lethargy, anemia and weakened immunity system is that occurs during periods of stress.

Giemsa color slides and then stained slides with an optical microscope lens 100 and H. columbae were evaluated in terms of infection, with the results of this study, the prevalence of pigeons H. Columbae in Zabol (56/7 % ) , Nimroz (43/3 % ) , Hirmand ( 60 % ) and Zahak (63/3 % ) and Backyard Chickens were set equal to zero.
