I know that many animals can sense things that humans can't, but this really is amazing:  Birds 'fled day before US tornadoes' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-30531060

That's amazing.  But let's not forget that without the ability to fly, the escape would not have been possible.  Mammals for example would have had to hide instead of flee.  

I've always said that the bird's wings are almost as useful as the human brain.  Instant flight...doesn't get any better than that.
