Here's what Jay Holcomb of the IBRRC wrote to me: "I honestly don't know. It was a laughing gull and we received quite a few that day. The problem is that they all got put together and by the time we got them much of the loose oil had been whipped off. A few of the gulls died in the last few days but most are alive. Just really not sure if it made it or not."
