Description
Walking the dock in Morro Bay marina I saw an used oil filter on dock next to life preserver. California Coastal Commission "Green Marina Checklist" states: "Small quantities of oil and fuel are toxic to marine life. One pint of oil can cover an acre of the water's surface. Oil coats birds' feathers and mammals fur, destroying their natural insulation and causing them to die of hypothermia. Birds can also die from ingesting oil when preening their feathers."

Bird watchers were beginning to arrive for Morro Bay's 4-day Winter Bird Festival.
