Midwest Wilderness Connections Eco-sweep: Migratory Birds Predicting Hurricanes

 

The Veery, and other declining migratory bird species that call the Midwest home during the summer, have been found to reliably predict disastrous hurricane seasons.

The birds wrap up nesting, then hightail it south, earlier than they do in average years. So much so that financial investors are taking a serious look at the the science behind this natural phenomenon. The birds' predictions could also save countless lives by giving coastal communities an early heads-up of an above normal hurricane season.

Many of these birds are imperiled due to multiple human stressors. With the loss of each species, we lose critical knowledge and the benefits those species have perfected for eons. All the answers are out there, until they're extinguished, lost for all time. In my corresponding MWC Facebook post, I provided links to scientific findings and an article written for financial market modeling.
