    How many millions of birds should BP clean in order to clean their oil spilled image?

    Accidents happen - and when they do you have to do everything to make amends. For this helpless bird it's a good day today.

    I'm glad that they are trying but I heard a radio program the other day re. cleaning birds and unfortunately the survival rate of these (cleaned) birds are extremely low. Most die within 9 days of release. I was surprised too. Quite sad. My hope is that this event acts as a turning point if not to alternative energy at least to come up with more strict protocol regarding safeguarding against such incidents.
