It was way easier than that. Just visit any veterinian’s office following an earthquake.
Now known - cockatiels can predict earthquakes. They pull their own feathers out. Which is kind of an anti-survival move, but still.

Just makes sense. You want to know about water quality, ask a fish. You want to know what going on in the air - ask a bird.

Eh, that’s not predicting the weather. Once the pressure is dropping, weather is already happening. Many many many animals can feel a change in pressure, including humans.

How does that apply to animals predicting earthquakes even before a seismograph catches it, though?

It doesn’t, and neither does the article.

True - my only point was that the article acted like this was something new, when animals reacting to approaching conditions is long known.
