Hello everyone,

Do birds get affected by storms, and if they do, what is their behavior?

Thanks,

Bouncerhero I am in no way an expert on this but I believe they can sense the pressure changes from storms and in events like hurricanes they will find a place to take refuge during the storm. I remember seeing footage of people walking through what was left of a forest in Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria and footage showing lots of dead birds on the ground so some don't fare as well as others. :(
