Where do common resident birds, like pigeons, go when a hurricane hits a city?
I have found some articles discussing destruction of habitat and how that affects migratory birds. However, I don't know what happens to birds like sparrows and pigeons.
Hurricane Ike hit Houston recently and I noticed birds were gone for a day or two, and then they suddenly seemed to come back in the same numbers as before.
Do they fly away before the hurricane? Are their nests really well constructed? Do they claw in and hold on?
