"Reporting from New Orleans The increased flow of oil diverted from a blown well to a ship offered a glimmer of hope that the spill in the Gulf of Mexico was slowly being contained, but concerns grew Sunday as resources to protect the coastline were stretched thin and wildlife casualties mounted.
"The number of birds picked up by wildlife rescue workers in five gulf states jumped by nearly 100 from Saturday's toll. Of the 820 birds found so far, 597 were dead, and all 223 found alive had oil on them.
"For the first time, birds contaminated with oil showed up in Texas, underscoring Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen's warning that the massive spill had splintered into "literally hundreds of thousands" of smaller slicks pushed in different directions by winds and currents."
