Buffalo, NY. We just moved here in October, so I really don't know the wildlife pattern. No squirrells or rabbits anymore and very few birds. Could be the snow and low temps. Hubby and I have been experiencing an increase in ringing in the ears. The ringing is louder and longer in duration than normal.
Wonder if we could get a tidal wave off the Erie from a quake?

I live in Northeastern Arkansas and I have noticed that I have no rabbits in my yard. THis started about 2 days before Thanksgiving. I was talkingto my brother, and he said he hasn't seen any signs of squirels feeding on the pecan trees in our orchard, on the wild trees nearby. He hasn't seen any squirrels either. I have two in my back yard that don't seem to be going onywhere.
I haven't seen anything strange in the sky, day or night, I'll continue to keep my eyes open.
Thanks for your email. In principle, collecting stories about animal behaviour could provide useful warnings of earthquakes. The problem is the websites or telephone systems have to be very widely known to get a big sample of peoples’ reports. Also, issuing warnings that turn out to be false can cause panic and could also discredit the whole system. But for research purposes collecting stories and seeing what happens is indeed a good idea. Please let me know what happens!

Cardinals all over my yard, little birds of all kinds by the millions here in Missouri. So many Geese which usually fly south for the winter, and have been on the same track for many years kept flying back and forth for days. We lost track of which direction they finally went.
As for my cats, they are CRAZY! They act like they are starving, they are fat and have always been well cared for. They run in a pack ahead of me to the kitchen and jump up on their food area, they jump into the trashcan where we keep the pet food to eat out of the bag, but if I take the bag and place it on the feeding shelf, they wont eat it there and run and jump in the trashcan when I open it to feed the dogs...
My dogs wont eat out of their own bowls, they want ANYONES but their own.
The chickens are attacking when we step into the coop, they have always been like pets, so yes Id say my pets are acting strange.
And the coyotes are howling alot, I almost cried when I heard them the other night, they seem so intense about something...

Interesting enough - someone else has mentioned about ringing in the ears. Last night when I went to bed - I could not get to sleep for awhile - there was a very odd type ringing (very low frequency). I have bad hearing (too many years of listening to loud music through headphones), anyway - I looked around for the source of weird ringing/frequency. I then laid down again, trying to ignore it (thinking over active imagination - with this thread and all), BUT the ringing/frequency was not a steady one - it would go on and off and in various pitches and levels.
I finally got to sleep, but my cat woke me up over and over last night, by stepping on my face - laying on my face and even scratching at my face.
She would also go to the edge of the bed and look out for a moment then come right back to get as close to me as possible. To me - it was all odd - as she has never been so insistent - especially waking me up by doing things to my face. btw: I am in Tennessee - eastern part.
