Birds 'heard tornadoes coming'

Birds 'heard tornadoes coming' and fled one day ahead

Reported on the BBC website
US scientists say tracking data shows that five golden-winged warblers "evacuated" their nesting site one day before the April 2014 tornado outbreak.

Geolocators showed the birds left the Appalachians and flew 700km (400 miles) south to the Gulf of Mexico.

The next day, devastating storms swept across the south and central US.

Writing in the journal Current Biology, ecologists suggest these birds - and others - may sense such extreme events with their keen low-frequency hearing.
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Is it for real? Can it be true?

Yeah. Animals can sense danger - tornadoes, floods... My pets three times sense the floods is coming.

Elephants on the Islands around the Indian Ocean all run inland just before the Tsunami struck, its on record a few years ago,saving many local population when they saw the elephants panic and running away from the Sea.
