Birds, Insects and Hurricanes

Scientists have new insight into how birds and insects become trapped inside the eyes of hurricanes.

Ship logs as far back as the 19th century detail how vessels became resting places for birds, exhausted from such entrapments. But studies by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln of weather radar “bioscatter” echoes during hurricanes show in detail how the storms can turn a free bird into a whirlybird.

Researchers found that the stronger the hurricane, the more birds appeared to be in the eye. And with the increasing intensity of the storms, the more difficult it will be for the birds to leave the relative safety of the eye. That could mean they need to spend as much as a week flying in circles across thousands of miles.

La Niña – A La Nina pattern has developed and will likely impact U.S. weather conditions for the entire winter with above-average precipitation across the northern Midwest, the northern Rockies, Northern California, and the Pacific Northwest’s southern and eastern regions. Meanwhile, precipitation in the southwestern and southeastern states, as well as Southern California, is below average. La Niña results in wetter-than-normal conditions in Southern Africa from December to February, and drier-than-normal conditions over equatorial East Africa over the same period. During a time of La Niña, drought plagues the coastal regions of Peru and Chile. From December to February, northern Brazil is wetter than normal.
