Birds can be harmed by oil through physical contact, ingestion, inhalation and absorption. Oiled birds can lose the ability to fly, dive for food or float on the water, which could lead to drowning. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports on birds rescued and collected during the response to the BP oil spill. To report oiled or injured wildlife, please call (866) 557-1401.
