nightingale

Here is my best explanation:

'singer' is the definition.
(nightingale is a kind of birdanimal)

'darkness during storm' is the subsidiary indication.
'darkness' becomes 'night' (night is a kind of darkness).
'during' becomes 'in' (I've seen this in other clues).
'storm' becomes 'gale' (I've seen this before).
'night'+'in'+'gale'='nightingale'

'in' is the link.
