    Perhaps ... if there is even such an animal - a biochemical chain with piezoelectric properties.

    On the topic of migrations, insect migrations like with monarch butterflies seem to depend in part on very accurate timekeeping, perhaps tying in to location of the sun.

    After all, once Europeans had good timepieces (read: longitude) that plus shooting stars (and the sun at specific times of day) made navigation child's play.

    Maybe butterflies got a 100-million year drop on us. :)
