Unfortunately, the picture quality is not good enough for me to make an identification.

What makes you say these are bird mites? Where these found on a bird such as a chicken or a duck?

I encourage you to contact your Laramie County University of Wyoming Extension office at The local agent may have the means to look at your specimen in hand which would work better as this specimen is quite small. If an in-hand identification is not possible, then you may have the option of sending the specimen to the University of Wyoming's diagnostic lab (usually for a fee) for identification.
