Environmental contaminants in piping plover, least tern, and common tern eggs from coastal Maine: 2003 nesting season

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Maine's coastal islands and beaches provide important nesting habitat for piping plover (Charadrius melodus), least tern (Sterna antillarum), and common tern (Sterna hirundo). In Maine, relatively few contaminant investigations have been performed with piping plover, least terns and common terns, and little is known about current body burdens of contaminants in these species. Thirty-two nonviable and abandoned eggs were collected between May and July, 2003. Of the 22 organochlorine compounds in the analytical scan, only five compounds were found in egg composite samples - dieldrin, hexachlorobenzene (HCB), total polychlorinated biphenyl (Total PCB), p,p'-DDE, and trans-nonachlor. Although highly elevated levels of organochlorine compounds and inorganic elements were not detected in these six egg composite samples, additional monitoring is recommended to quantify potential temporal and spatial contaminant trends in birds nesting along the Maine coast.
