The native int size on your x86 compiler is probably 32 bits.  Each
argument to the shift is promoted to int first; that's the bit about
"integer promotions" and this gets you answer you're expecting.  I
believe the native int size on avr-gcc is 16 bits, so your left operand:


stays at 16 bits on the AVR.
