The American Bird Conservancy put out a list of 10 globally important bird areas that may be affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the next few days in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and North Florida. Southwest Florida is not included on the list but water currents and wind could change endanger local coastlines. 'Everything that is in the Gulf region, the entire coastline is in danger,' said Gavin Shire, spokesman for the organization. David Albers/Staff
