The IBRRC is, of course, totally overwhelmed with birds from the gulf oil spill.  They work in many other places too.  They’ve done a lot of great work over the years, both developing better treatment and cleaning methods and actually saving birds.  They could really use your contribution, now or any time: go to their blog and hit “Donate Now.”
