Huntington Beach Canal Spill: Day 1

One OWCN team from Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center began active search and collection this morning, with two more teams (from WWCC and IBRRC on standby).  As of 1230 hrs, while just a couple of oiled birds have been seen, no birds have been collected.  This early in a spill, birds are often active and evade capture well.  Plus, most of the field work (due to it being in a canal) must be done by skiff, which birds can see and avoid more readily.  Capture attempts will continue throughout the day.  Stay tuned….
