The oil mats Its feathers and prevents flight. Often the bird starves. Sometimes it gets washed ashore where somebody picks it up and tries to rehabilitate it. But in 90$ of the cases the bird dies. Washing the feathers with soaps or detergents takes the oil away, and with it the natural oils. So If the bird tries to swim, it sinks; if it is exposed to air, It often gets pneumonia and dies. New hope for such derelicts, however, comes from England where a woman had the oil problem dumped into her lap. She lives in a house on the Atlantic Ocean and well-oiled birds float up to her doorstep many times. She and others have come up with a treatment using fuller's earth or prepared ehalk. This absorbs the excess oils but doesn't steal the natural oils from the feathers. Other things, such as proper feeding and keeping room temperature right, are important, but the key step is absorbing the oil rather than washing it away.
