Abstract:Sparrows from central Poland were examined by a hemagglutination-inhibition test (titer ≥ 20) for the presence of antibodies to arboviruses, between 1995 and 1996. In house sparrows (Passer domesticus) (n = 179), antibodies to Sindbis, West Nile, tick-borne encephalitis, Ťahyňa, and Čalovo viruses were detected at seroprevalences of 1.1%, 2.8%, 1.1%, 2.8%, and 1.1%, respectively. In tree sparrows (P. montanus) (n = 33), antibodies to the Sindbis, West Nile, and Ťahyňa viruses were detected at seroprevalences of 9.1%, 12.1%, and 3.0%, respectively. /// Se examinaron gorriones de la región central de Polonia para estudiar la presencia de anticuerpos contra arbovirus entre los años 1995 y 1996, mediante la prueba de inhibición de la hemaglutinación (Títulos ≥ 20).
