Abstract

To gain insight into mercury exposure in Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in Iowa, US we collected blood from 22 rehabilitation eagles in 2012–13. The geometric mean blood mercury level was 0.144 μg/g (95% confidence interval: 0.066–0.314) and was at the lower end of the range of levels reported elsewhere.
