Weather Proverbs About Birds
For the last few years I have had a Robin fly into my sliding glass door off my deck. I assume it is the same one every year. It does not let me get close to it but does not fly away at first sight of me. It does this every spring and as the summer progresses will eventually go away.
I have read about how low pressure that comes before s storm causes birds discomfort so the fly lower then they usually do I have also seen birds using tire tracks in the snow to scratch through to the ground and reach food
Birds and other living creatures are probably confused about the weather and don't know how to act. Because of end time weather.
I read that Black Billed and Yellow Billed Cuckoos were called rain Crows because their calling was suppost to mean it will Rain and LOONS WERE CALLED RAIN GOOSE BECUASE IT WAS THOUGHT THEIR CALLING MEANT RAIN and i once heard Western Meadowlark sing in the Rain(Holy Gene Kelly Batman)and i have seen Snowbirds(Oregon Juncos)appear when there is snow coming
My husband and I observed what appeared to be thousands of robins on our southern Maryland property and on our neighbors' properties as well. The robins were on nearby paved streets, on the ground and in the grass, on power lines, and in all of the trees -- everywhere we looked, literally everywhere -- like they were gathering. It was autumn and overcast, but it didn't rain. The silence was almost deafening. Reminded us of Alfreda Hitchcock's "The Birds." We got in our car, went to the store, and returned home. They didn't scatter from starting the engine and moving the car, and they were still there 20 to 30 minutes later when we returned. This happened a second time a few years later, only there were not nearly as many birds. We've lived here for more than 20 years, in this area for better than 65 years, and we've never seen anything like this. What could this have been, and just how unusual is this?
Robin Flocks: What I have read is Canadian Robins MIGRATE each year to the United States during the Autumn; to avoid the harsh Canadians Winters; the Robin flock will spend the winter in the USA; then return to Canada late winter early spring to build their nests and raise their young during the summer;
I've seen these same flocks of Robins; not as many as u did; many times in Connecticut; they like the shrub and tree berries; these are Canadian Robins~
I own a pest & bird control company in Phoenix - goldshotexterminating.net - and we do a ton of pigeon proofing. Pigeons are really tough and about the only time I've seen a change in their behavior as far as the weather does is when we have lightening. They'll do their normal thing during rain, wind and the 100+ degree heat but will be a bit harder to find when the monsoons hit.
ok I was outside one day and i saw flocks of ducks i mean their was about 100 ducks or more in the sky going one direction and told my dad to look up and he said that spring is on its way.
Is it true?
Yes, your Dad was right. The birds were migrating. They go north between winter and spring and south between summer and fall.
