I posted a web site recently, fire.airnow.gov, that shows the enormous smoke plume along west coast real well. It is far offshore. I suspect this is part of the reason the birding is so good along the south coast right now. Quite a few big mixed flocks on the outer coast- more than I remember in past years anyhow. Once the smoke clears it will probably be back to normal so now is a good time to bird the coast I think and get away from the very nasty valley smoke. It is foggy/smoky on the coast but not near as bad as the valley.
