Images of oiled birds from the Gulf Coast taken by Cornell Lab teams in June 2010. Birds were oiled as the result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Species seen include American White Pelican, Brown Pelican, Snowy Egret, Sanderling, terns, and gulls. There was a huge effort underway at the time to capture these birds and bring them to rehabilitation experts for treatment.
