Abstract

Mercury concentrations were measured in blood, down and feather samples collected front 20 postfledging Wood Storks (Mycteria americana) captured in the coastal zone of Georgia to establish a reference level for free-rangingstorks utilizing this region and assess if mercury is present in potentially hazardous concentrations. Blood concentrations ranged froth 0.04-1.57 mug Hg/g (wet weight) and down and feather concentrations ranged from 1.23-18.05 mug Hg/g (dry weight). Comparisons of observed concentrations with published levels of concern suggest that some free-ranging storks may be at risk of sublethal effects due to mercury contamination. Observed concentrations are generally higher than those reported for Wood Stork nestlings in thisregion from the same time period, possible resulting from differences in diet and patterns of down/feather growth and molt.
