Do birds get lost in storms like we do?

    This article says that birds are able to detect a storm’s coming, and either escape the area in time or ride out the storm in a safe sheltered location. However, I’m sure birds occasionally do get swept up in and lost in storms.

    Yes.  Many birds, especially coastal species, often have no protection from fierce storms and hurricanes and are easily blown away from their homes.  Especially during migration, whole flocks of birds can be blown off course and can end up in a completely unintended location.  This is very traumatic for the birds and they often do not survive due to disorientation and inability to adapt to the new environment.
