Wildlife officials rescue Turkey Vultures, WSVN, November 10, 2010:
A passing boater contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Center after spotting the lethargic vultures floating in Biscayne Bay covered in oil.
Rescuers took the birds to the Bird of Prey Center at the Miami Science Museum for treatment. "We're gonna give them fluids; warm them up. These birds are probably all hypothermic, so a lot of supportive care and none of them appear to have any fractures, said employee Meranda Dickey of the Miami Science Museum.
Biologists mind-boggled by a depressing discovery in Biscayne Bay.
