Family Friendly Camping & RV Parking for the Total Solar Eclipse

It will be fascinating to observe the animal’s behavioral reactions, especially when triggered by slight changes in light and temperature. When the eclipse begins, it will be a good idea to keep an eye or ear out for the wildlife and farm animals nearby—they’re likely to show signs they know what’s going on.

Songbirds may fall silent as the Moon passes in front of the Sun.  The darkening sky may trigger night-time behavior, in the middle of the afternoon

Maybe the rooster will crow a second time on August 21st as the sun re-emerges from behind the Moon, thinking that day is breaking again!
