    In 1967 a total of 41 human cases of psittacosis were reported to the National Communicable Disease Center (NCDC). This was 9 cases fewer than in 1966 . Psittacosis surveillance reports were received on 38 of the 41 cases. Parakeets and pigeons were the most frequently mentioned probable sources of infection.
