I am wondering if anyone has made any observations of WTNT or FTS in the smoke affected areas. We have old observations of them being attracted to smoke but then there was speculation that the vast amounts of smoke from Indonesian fires during migration may have reduced their oxygen supply and brought casualties. I am hoping that I might gather some more evidence on either circumstance.

Happy birding and safe-keeping from fires.
