Wild animals react to the 2017 Total Eclipsered squirrels barking, tree frogs croaking and crickets and other night insects chirping! Total eclipse of the sun over the Great Smoky Mountains – with night-time cricket, frogs and other critter noises coming from the deep forest after the darkness of totality starting about 1:30 into the video and then back to normal. We fought off clouds and just managed to get a window at max eclipse time. This was filmed with no filters at all with a Tamron 150-600 mm Canon zoom.

Forest animals react to the total darkness of the 2017 eclipse. I put a camera back in the forest just to record the sounds as day turned to night. Listen for the barking and alarm call of Red Squirrels, Eastern Towhees, chickadees and some doves crashing into tree branches as they freak out in the dark. Also interesting is a distant human screaming as the eclipse reaches totality. Sound really travels in the mountain forest. Filmed in the Great Smoky Mountains. If you want to skip right to the dark part it starts at 3:00.
