Birds and The Guld Oil Spill

We birders know the BP oil eruption into the Gulf of Mexico came at the height of the nesting season for many coastal species.  From pelicans to terns the story is an ugly one. Here’s a good source of direct information, not filtered by  press releases, government trepidation or BP spin.  It;s written by a conservation official of the American Birding Association.

Here’s a link to the National Wildlife Federation’s Oil gusher page. The whole front page of the National Audubon Society is dominated by the oil mess. And there’s fresh stuff on the Cornell Ornithology Lab blog as well.
