Re: Smoke in Paradise

Shocking. The smoke is much worse this morning in Seattle, probably not nearly as bad in Oregon and California.

Where are the birds? The backyard birds are gone, nearly all of them. Did they fly off or die from smoke inhalation? They aren't eating the seed. No squirrels either. Are they hiding underground?

I noticed something strange yesterday. A back yard bird eating a flower. Didn't touch the seed. I have never seen this. Hungry but not eating bird food. One hummingbird came by this morning. The yard is usually full of birds fighting over the food.

I'm afraid this is going to last for weeks. This is a dry September for Seattle. We have light rain in the forecast for next weekend. We have for the last two weeks but no rain.

If Seattle is dry where does it rain?
