Is it just a p.r. ploy on the part of B.P.? This morning, our "Bird Watch" host Roger Taylor talked about the futility of trying to clean all those poor birds down in the Gulf Region. He said that while he was torn on the subject, studies have shown that those birds who have been washed and relocated have only a 1% chance of survival and that we're prolonging their agony since most will die anyway from ingesting oil after trying to clean themselves. Some bird advocates say that euthanasia would be more humane.
