We report new records for ixodid ticks in birds in an Atlantic Forest fragment, in the southeastern of the state of Rio de Janeiro, southeast Brazil. We collected 222 ticks: three females of Ixodes paranaensis and 40 larvae and 179 nymphs belonging to the genus Amblyomma, on 82 birds. The new records are: three semi-engorged females of Ixodes paranaensis collected on Cypseloides fumigatus, Apodidae; five nymphs of Amblyomma nodosum collected on Leucopternis lacernulatus, Geotrygon montana, Piaya cayana, Trogon viridis and Dysithamnus stictothorax; four nymphs of Amblyomma longirostre collected on Veniliornis maculifrons, Lepidocolaptes angustirostris, Machetornis rixosa and Tangara peruviana; two nymphs of Amblyomma calcaratum collected on Terenura maculata and Mimus saturninus; and five nymphs of Amblyomma tigrinum collected on Ramphocelus bresilius. Additionally, we also add tick records that have previously been reported from other fragments of the Atlantic Forest.
