Poisoning of wild birds by organo phosphate and carbamate pesticides



Poisoning of wild birds by organo phosphate and carbamate pesticides



New York Fish & Game Journal 26(1): 37-47



Eight instances are reported where organophosphate or carbamate (cholinesterase inhibitor) pesticides applied for various purposes killed wild birds [Anas spp., Branta canadensis, Meleagris gallopovo, Lophodytes cucullatus, Totranus flavipes, Eremophila alpestris, Phasianus colchisus, Podilymbus podiceps, Actitus macularis, Turdus migratorius, Chanadrius Semipalmatus, Ardea herodias, Sturnus vulgaris, Quiscalus quiscula, Zenaidura macroura, Agelaius phoeniceus, Columba livia, Cyanocilta cristata]. It is believed that thousands of birds are being killed in this way, and more such cases are anticipated because of the widespread use, and often misuse, of these pesticides. Methods are suggested for investigating wildlife poisonings of this sort.
