Another thing

Another thing I keep forgetting to blog: apparently someone wanted to know how well birds survived after being caught in the oil spill, cleaned, and released. Most died within 7 days. (Likely due to oil that was ingested before they were cleaned.) I think I heard this on CBC's "As It Happens"... yup, looks like it was the June 21 episode.

Cleaning oiled birds: good PR for the oil companies, not necessarily a good thing for the birds.
