[Tweeters] birds and smoke

We have observed several finches on the ground, like on the roads or near the roads in groups that did not want to fly.. as well as I've seen from others of large flocks of geese that also were resistant to flying. I had a friend that got home from camping saying that was totally missing in the woods, no birds, no sounds of birds and any they saw were after they were out and in groups down low < he's not a birder, just his observation while talking about the smoke. I'm sure it's pretty difficult for them if not worse. :/ Super sick of this.. super sad :/

I have been wondering the same thing. I came across this article about a current study at UW:
