    The Robin Group at Langton P.S., Fenelon Falls, Ont., Canada,
    (Dawn, Katie, Ryan & Clayton)
    think that the D.D.T. was sprayed onto the vegetation that the worms
    were eating
    (since the robins eat decaying organic matter). The robins would then
    eat the worms and be poisoned by this harmful insecticide.
