Oil-Covered Birds of the Gulf

The Associated Press has posted this slideshow on YouTube. It documents the impact of the BP oil spill on wildlife in the Gulf. You may have seen these photos elsewhere, but we were unable to find other pictures. There are reports that BP has blocked access to areas affected by the spill. These heart-wrenching images show shorebirds including pelicans, cormorants and egrets.
