Abstract

We collected eggs or young Great Blue Herons from eight nesting colonies in the northwestern United States from 1977 through 1982. Subadults were collected at three estuarine areas in Puget Sound in 1981 and dead young or adults were collected at various localities. Nearly all samples analyzed contained organochlorine residues. There was no evidence that nay of the organochlorines detected were related to lethal or serious sublethal effects.
