In this photo taken Thursday, Sept. 24, 2015, intern Julie Wheeler places a common murre into a forced-air drier after an exam at the International Bird Rescue facility in Cordelia, Calif. Across Northern California, malnourished seabirds have been appearing in alarming numbers, some shrunken to little more than feather and bone. Many of the thin-billed species are being brought into the International Bird Rescue Center, which says it is taking in the birds at the highest rates in 18 years.
