Hospital staff in Wales left some food outside — a vat of chicken tikka masala. A seagull fell in while seeking food. The staff rescued the white bird to find its feathers had turned orange.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A photo shows an orange seagull. Not white - orange. A dye job - inadvertent, so far as we know. Staff at a hospital in Wales had left some food outside - waste, a vat of chicken tikka masala, which includes orange sauce. The gull fell in while seeking food. The staff rescued it to find the feathers orange and its bird eyes looking a little shocked. They washed off the white bird, though it still smells like spicy chicken. It's MORNING EDITION.
