Birds In snow
Don't you ever wonder how these birds keep warm during these brutal temperatures? I sure do, while I sit all snuggled up inside my temperature controlled house and sip on my hot tea. While I watch this constant flutter of activity outside my window.
I have a theory... I think sitting in groups together, eating high fatty foods, with a lot of activity keeps them going. Some birds use the practice of feather fluffing , a process that puffs out the down feathers to create air pockets , which gives a bird better insulation and traps body heat.
The fatty foods helps too. Birds are mostly active one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset.
