Bird Flight in Rain
Can birds fly in rain?
Yes, and often do, though many birds will seek some shelter, especially
during heavy rain.
Birds certainly can fly in the rain. Their feathers are oily and repel
water. Also, their bones are hollow, so even if they do get a little wet,
it won't weigh them down too much. It's a different story whether birds
LIKE flying in the rain or not!
