AbstractDuring the reproductive season, plasma chemistry was determined for 75 free-ling white spoonbills (Platalea leucorodia) and sexual and age differences examined. Females showed levels of triglycerides, calcium, alkaline phosphatase and magnesium significantly higher than males. The mean concentrations of total plasma proteins and sodium were significantly higher for adults, while nestlings had higher levels of uric acid, urea, phosphate and creatinine. Nestlings had significantly higher levels of alkaline phosphatase than both adult males and females, and higher levels of triglycerides and calcium than males, but lower than females. Total protein concentration was positively correlated with physical condition in adult spoonbills, although it explained only about 18% of the variance.
