I'm returning to Canberra today after a quick trip to Exmouth for the eclipse.
Unfortunately there weren't many birds in my immediate vicinity around totality, and the relatively short period of totality made it hard to take everything in. A Singing Honeyeater started calling a couple of minutes after but was silent during totality. Crickets started calling during totality and kept that up for at least a few minutes after.
Someone has since shared a 12 second video on Facebook, I believe they were in town where there were more birds. They note the birds are "going crazy" and there is a chorus of birds including Corellas and Miners. It certainly sounds like a strong reaction.
I snorkeled with Whale Sharks on Friday and our crew noted that around and after totality on Thursday they saw multiple Whale Sharks swimming near the surface, whereas they are normally at least several metres below. Not sure how scientific their observations were but interesting if true.
