About This Project

Significant declines in North American songbird populations over the past 50 years highlight the need for research on new and varied threats to these species. Current known contributing factors include habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change, however little is known about the effects of heavy metal toxicity. This project aims to screen blood lead levels in songbirds admitted to a wildlife hospital to determine the risk of lead exposure and correlate with cause of admission and outcomes.
