Have you wondered what birds do during a total eclipse? You’re not alone. Thanks to your eclipse eBirding, we’re closer than ever before to knowing the answer. It turns out that, unsurprisingly, many birds reacted to a sudden obscuring of the sun and the resulting 360-degree ‘sunset’. Thanks to the team at BirdCast, we have interactive eclipse bird behavior results from your eBird checklists on Aug 21 during the North American total eclipse. Read first-hand accounts of swifts and swallows dropping out of the skies; nighthawks and owls coming out to call and feed; and herons, hawks, and doves going to roost in the middle of the day.
