Chirping During Storm

A while back a bird ( I think it was a sparrow) began chirping during a storm before dawn when it was still dark outside. Why would it do that? Occasionally I will hear a bird at night but never during a storm.

well, it might be trying to assess the health of its friends. or to make sure its friends know where it is.

Have you ever gotten lost in a storm? If yes, then i rest my case.
