I wonder - besides affected migrating birds, what would happen if the winds were to shift (currently out of the North) and bring all the smoke, soot, etc. inland?

>> I hope someone in the birding community is giving input to authorities that are considering setting fire to the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. I wonder what the impact would be on peak trans-gulf migration considering the size of the slick. Late migrating species might take a big hit. I also wonder if fumes are emitted from the slick. Perhaps there are no fumes from unprocessed crude ... ? Perhaps this seems like an absurd idea but I read it was actually done once before.
