It got closed for being "primarily opinion-based". And maybe it's just me, but...
How can bird behavior be opinion based?
I'm not asking for subjective interpretations of behavior. I'm not asking what you think the birds do. I'm asking a simple question: "When X happens, what do birds do?" X happens to be "It starts raining".
And the community's answer is "Well, that depends on how you feel about it."
To me, that's... that just doesn't make any sense at all.
I'm not a scientist, I'm not a biologist, I don't do anything related to biology in either my work or my spare time, so I might not have the knowledge to understand the reasons behind these close votes... but surely, when it starts raining, the birds don't care about our opinions and just do their own thing?
... Unless it's based on the birds's opinions themselves of course.
