Feeding Ecology of Little Blue Herons at a Radionuclide-contaminated Reservoir
H. Domby and R. W. McFarlane
The significantly different radiocesium levels
within a radionuclide-contaminated nuclear reactor cooling reservoir system are
reflected in the differentially contaminated prey of Little Blue Herons.
The significant differences in radiocesium body burdens between nestlings
from different nests indicate that a tendency exists for the adults of a small
heronry to use spatially separated feeding areas.
