Bond ETF vs High Interest Savings Account

I’ve gathered a moderate investment portfolio and am looking to park my cash somewhere liquid for use if opportunities arise.

Traditionally I guess this would be somewhere like a high interest savings account – but I’ve been wondering why a Bond ETF wouldn’t be an investment vehicle that would provide not only greater returns, but have the same stability through market volatility? I haven’t found much information on the performance of Bond ETFs during periods of recession or volatility – would a Bond ETF be stable and continue to reflect the value of the underlying bonds/assets during such a time? Or would it be vulnerable to larger market sentiment?
