hello everyone,

after reading the paper about the effects on ethical judgement-making in
humans who were given one dose of an antidepressant, i sought out a paper
that investigates the effects of these drugs upon wildlife. in short, after
a pharmaceutical enters a person's body, it will then leave the body, often
via sewage. as all of us birders know, sewage treatment plants are a
birding bonanza, but what are these birds ingesting along with a tasty
(abeit disgusting) morsel at these treatment plants? this paper presents
some data for starlings on prozac:

please do share widely.

cheers,
