Reading this the other day How earthquakes can trigger copycat quakes 1000km away

Very basically, it is saying that if the frequencies are just right (and each fault has it's own frequency trigger) then distant quakes can vibrate rock particles within the fault itself , making the fauly more "slippery". Perhaps the Chile quake had just the right frequency?

Good to see the gags and blinders are finally coming off. ...Ten years ago, I took a LOT of flak here for posting that Quakes Trigger Quakes.

Media has made it appear to be very bad out west still. Ranging from Washington state. Spots of Oregon state. And of course northern California.

Thanks for sharing that it's getting better. Now the question is, is there anything left for migratory birds to go to?

MamaJ. 4.0's eh? Everyone stay safe.

I live in Seattle (if you had not already ascertained that) and also noticed the agitated birds and then the sudden absence of animal life of any sort. I like crows and much to my neighbor's chagrin (I live next-door to a large car dealer) there is a crow that I have 'connected' with and give him breakfast/dinner on a pretty regular basis. I can count on him (and sometimes his girlfriend/wife and child) greeting me by swooping over my head and dragging his wing-tip or tail-feathers across the top of my head, something that can be a bit startling as he always does it from behind and sometimes without a warning "cawl". No sight of him, his entourage, or any of the other 100's of crows that call Lake City their stomping grounds... But, as was mentioned previously, there was a weather change- however, in my opinion, the wind-storm we had a few weeks ago was much more pronounced and sudden than what we experienced this week and that storm did not have the same apparent effect on the local urban wildlife. Another thing that I noticed as odd... I often look up, hoping to see something interesting/entertaining, and on the day when the birds seemed agitated, I noticed the crows in groups making a lot of noise and circling above the area, but what really surprised me were the small groups of TINY birds doing the same thing as the crows, but at much higher altitudes than I believed they were capable of. I'm talking little sparrows here, the kind you see hopping around on the ground and hiding in low vegetation... and they were so high in the air that they looked like moths flying in formation... WEIRD! Also noticed that the garden snails, usually out after a rain, were nowhere to be found. Perhaps they have decided that summer is over and it is time to sleep until spring-time (sounds like a good idea to me!)

Have a great big beautiful day

Hmmm I noticed my hound dog acting strange yesterday, he was sitting alert and searching around the backyard. I dunno if that has to do with a puppy being back there with him also, just got a puppy doberman.

I have noticed no other animal behavior really..

Birds are pretty sensitive to magnetic fields etc.

Who knows thou op, you do live off of the Pacific, I mean the Japanese are dumping tons of radiation into the that ocean you know...

Perhaps it is starting to effect the animals etc.

I would think maybe it might have something to do with it.. I do not know thou... Just trying to help.

I have been noticing more crows, and ravens circling overhead more so than usual, and our ducks have been sitting under the bushes in our backyard more because of them. I've also seen a small rise in dead birds on the ground, seemingly from impact injuries, like hitting the wall of a building.

I live in British Columbia...

I didn't want to wait until I got through the entire thread. At the mention of GEE and what was going on, I loaded it and looked at the Leavenworth, WA station and this is what I saw:

Thought that was interesting. Then I went back just a few minutes ago and saw this:

It looks like something may be going on.

Stay Safe

I'm in PA as well.. And I concur on your mention of the Tetrad, Blood Moon and its gravitational pull. You're correct, Moon closest.

Keep your wits about you,
maybe hunker down for the rest of the week..

Animal biology is still a bit of a mystery to us..

Just talked to my uncle. He's in Silverdale WA. He works at Bangor Sub/Missile Base. May or may not have to do with what's going on.
But he was telling me that the NAVY was testing with Sonar recently. He told me it interferes with dolphins and other marine life. He was not sure about birds..........

He did also say that the sonar was known to open garage doors.....

Not trying to panic anyone but take a look at this map taken just now from Emergency and Disaster Information Service:

That's the lowest number of earthquakes I have ever seen around the Pacific Rim. This could suggest that pressure is building and not being released in the usual series of small quakes.

YES! I live up near the border of canada in Birch Bay. This was a little while ago, about a month but...well I wrote this little story about an owl attack, probably unrelated but funny: The most frightening thing just happened to me...I had just been laying by the beach toking up and listening to a podcast about the trickster. I was walking home through a forest trail from the bay and thinking about a large owl I often see seemingly guarding the entrance/exit when I feel something on my head...thinking it was a branch I shake my head up and down.. inches above my head the large white owl flaps and its wings hit my face..I ran screaming like a woman as fast as I followed in close pursuit It stayed just inches from me as I ran, I looked to the left as it swooped again... Now I'm angry and I yell and swing my arm like a caveman at pulls up and away and I ran out of the trail and it stayed in the woods...creepy as #...and I'm high as #...bad juju....

I like to subscribe to the belief that animals know more about the inner workings of the world than we do. Some may laugh at me for saying this due to how often animals are hit crossing roads, but I think their sense of self-preservation is far higher than ours. Plus, I believe anyone that says their fauna's behavior is off in some way. Once you life somewhere long enough, you get to know how things work, the animals, and even able to familiarize with certain creature's daily habits. I would look into migratory paths if any of them are of the migration sort. They could be flocking and altering paths to maneuver around the wildfires.

I don't laugh at you. We (humans) are so out of touch with this planet that it's no wonder we are in the troubles that we are in.

I live just North of Seattle. Birds seem completely normal here.

My dogs were a little high strung day before yesterday, but I think that was the wind. It was fairly blustery. It actually broke a gate latch and the neighbor lost a few branches.

I'm in a suburb of Phila. PA and three birds flew into my living room windows yesterday. I've only had three fly into my windows in the 24 years living in this house before yesterday. Me think sumpins' up.

Wow...I wasn't expecting this much of a response!

I have one update to add:

This morning, a local person reported (via 911) that there was a coyote curled up under a chair on their porch! This was shared via a news FB site, so I can't do a direct link, but here is the text:

Burlington: A reporting party states that there is a coyote on her front porch, under a chair, it's been there a few hours... Dispatch seeing if Fish and Wildlife agency is available to assist if necessary... Officer sited animal, however, unable to get clear view, he stated it possibly could be a fox...

Link to: Skagit Breaking News

For those familiar with coyotes in rural areas...this is not normal!

Now...while these things could certainly lead to all kinds of speculation, I want to stress that while I am obviously aware of animal behavior and earthquakes, I am not making any sort of claims. Awareness is good, but being scared or over reacting is NOT. I always remind my friends that these things are great reminders, to ask yourself that what if question. Would YOU be prepared if the big one hit?

Well, would YOU?
(and yes, I feel that I am.
