It turned out that a solar eclipse can seriously affect birds

The total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, may seriously affect bird populations, primarily migratory ones. Ornithologists from Cornell University (CU) in the USA warned about this, according to the official website of the scientific institution.

According to ornithologists, birds rely on the Sun for navigation and determining the time of day. When the sun disappears, the birds may lose their orientation and begin to randomly rush in the air.

This is especially important for migratory birds, as the spring migration season is underway. When the Moon covers the Sun, the animals in the air will probably start landing and looking for a place to sleep. Conversely, nocturnal species are more likely to perceive sudden dusk as a signal to start activity.

According to astronomical forecasts, the total eclipse on April 8 will last no more than 4.5 minutes. Residents of North America will be able to see its phases. In Russia, the astronomical phenomenon will not be observed, since the moon's shadow will not reach the territory of the Russian Federation.
