The results on the studies on chewing lice collected along eight years (1999-2007) from 85 birds belonging to 38 species (autochthonous and exotic) of the Romanian territory are presented. Out of the 69 chewing louse species identified in the studied material, 11 represent new reports for the Romanian parasitological fauna, three were reported before but with other names, and for other three species new hosts were identified. Also I report several cases of desertion on atypical hosts for several individuals of six chewing louse species.
