The presence of extended-spectrum ß-lactamase– and Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase–producing Enterobacteriaceae was investigated in feces and in choanal and cloacal swabs of birds in rescue centers. Ceftiofur-resistant Escherichia coli and Citrobacter freundii were isolated from feces of birds of prey (12% positive) and a group of gulls. The genes blaCTX-M-1, blaCTX-M-15, and blaCTX-M-32 coded for resistance.
