Metals at mine sites can be a risk for migratory birds, but it’s hard to assess how much of a risk it is without understanding what “normal” metal levels are in the birds. In a study in the Wildlife Society Bulletin, researchers examined metal concentrations in waterfowl in western Montana, where pollution from a mining pit has resulted in fatalities in the past.
Other articles look at attitudes toward wild pigs, Indigenous knowledge and wildlife management, predicting Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum) size using scat, and more.
