our ranch, southwest Stillwater
Payne County, OK
As I was conducting a prescribed burn in oak woodland on our ranch, I observed 6 Goatweed Leafwings emerge (or attempt to emerge) from the leaf litter as the flames came within a foot or two where each one had been hiding (scattered about on one third of an acre). My guess is that my burn, conducted to improve pollinator habitat, did kill a few Goatweed Leafwings.
