I'm not sure about methane, but I know other gasses tend to be heavier than air and therefore will 'hang' in a cloud close to the ground. I have had
some hazmat training, and most of the types we trained on behaved this way. For this reason, I would think for birds to be affected, they woud have
to be grouped on the ground, or branches of a tree vs. flying. As far as being in a house, I would think that so long as your windows are closed, you
would be okay,...it should disipate quickly especially if there is any kind of wind.
If you smell anything odd or certainly if you see anything that looks like fog hanging near the ground, get away from it. If your house suddenly
smells as if there is gas in it, get out and do not turn anything on or off on the way out...leave the door open. (a lot of gases have a low ignition
point...even static sparks can trigger it)
ETA: did you just feel that small quake?
