Release birds total now at 106
Another batch of cleaned birds were released back into the wild Tuesday at Heart’s Desire Beach at Tomales Bay. This brings the total of birds relased to 106. All of these birds were affected by the November 7, 2007 San Francisco Bay oil spill. They stabilized, fed and washed of oil at the IBRRC/OWCN bird rescue center.
The 30 birds released included 21 Surf Scoters, five Western Grebes, three White-winged Scoters and one Clark’s Grebe.
Another group of birds are planning to be released soon at Tomales Bay.
