How do oil spills affect birds?

Asked by Topperlearning User 27th October 2016, 1:20 PM
Answered by Expert

In oceanic regions, certain birds feed on fish which swim near the surface. To catch the fish, these birds dive into the water. When the birds dive in water which has oil spilled on its surface, the oil sticks to the feathers and makes the birds heavy and incapable of taking flight.
