Researchers working on tracking the movements of birds have discovered the animals seem to have the ability to sense and flee an area before bad weather arrived. Scientists were working to see if it was possible to track the birds, when they discovered unique patterns. When a storm system produced deadly tornado outbreaks in Misssouir, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Alabama, researchers located birds and found that they had left the area long before meteorologists issued warning about the storm. One possible explanation could be that the birds could hear a low frequency rumble from the storm that is not audible to humans. They said conditions such as cloudy skies could have warned the birds as well and more research is needed before they can be sure of the observations. The researchers noted that strange behavior from animals could be a warning of things to come.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell

Luke 12:6-7 (HCSB) “Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. (7) Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows!”
