Happy Birds

Here a just a few of the Common Murres that were affected by the algal bloom in Oregon and Washington. They've been transported to California, cleaned, and are recovering from their ordeal.

These birds were all migrating south for the winter, so they will be released in California when they are fully recovered.

Admit it. Those Murres are insanely cute!

They are really cute - it's great you're in a position to be able to help rehab them!
