Field crews have been searching throughout the day, but no new oiled animals have been observed or captured. The 3 birds admitted to the Los Angeles Oiled Bird Care and Education Center had a quiet night and were stable this morning. Laboratory tests suggest they might be strong enough to be cleaned this afternoon.
