Chlorinated bydrocarbon insecticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) and metal residue levels were measured in tissues of common crows, American coots, starlings and Franklin’s gulls of South Dakota. Methods of analysis for insecticides and PCB’s included column, thin-layer and gas—liquid chromatography and atomic absorption spectrophotometry for metals. DDE was the most prevalent residue, being detected in 93% of all samples ad averaging 66% of the total residues in the carcass.
