Animals 'can predict' turning of the seasons?

12 posts in this topic

Squirrels are hoarding nuts, the blackbirds are gobbling up berries and wild geese are arriving far earlier than usual — all signs, many people think, that this coming winter will be a cold and snowy one.

But are wild creatures really able to forecast the weather? And if so, could they be more reliable than the brains and super-computers of the Met Office?

Using wildlife to forecast the weather has a long history. If our ancestors wanted to know what the weather was going to be like the next day, they couldn’t rely on TV forecasts or the internet. So they watched what birds and animals were doing, and tried to work out if their behaviour meant there would be sunshine, rain or snow.

HHMMM..interesting how the Native North Americans have watched the animals and how they act to predict how the seasons and whether they are going to be harsh or mild. It's quite funny how many times scientists have these insights that the people have known for years.

because animals are still "in sync" and in connexion with nature. A thing we have lost over our greed of material possessions and shiny things.

Yup. We have put ourselves so far above nature that people look down on it now. We need to regain that connection.

Wild Ducks and wild Goose Hunters out here in south québec were mad recently because these birds were still out North at the beginning of the hunting season, specialist said that the weather would probably remain warm for awhile, thats why they were still up North, so i guess they predicted that we would stll have temp of +10 celsius as of today 27 of November, wich normally should be about -5 celsius.
