Up for a Wash

What’s a “COMU?”

In bird lingo, it’s a Common Murre, and we see a lot of them at our centers. Howard Freshman, one of our wonderful volunteer photographers, recently took these photos of an oiled Common Murre transferred to our Los Angeles center last week from Pacific Wildlife Care in Morro Bay.

Here, Rehabilitation Technician Marianne Domingues (left) and volunteer Leslie Eppick wash the bird.

We’ll keep you posted on this murre’s progress.
