ON BIRDIES


During our recent cold spell
all the birdies were fat and fluffy. 


 

Now that we are above thirty again ,
they are sleek and streamlined.
Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy for us ?
But they look cute all fat and fluffy .
 




Birds are warm blooded with extra fat layers
and will fluff their feathers
 thereby creating air pockets for added insulation.

Keep your feathers fluffy!!

I feel so sorry for them when they are all fluffy to keep warm, but I'm sure they survive just fine. Lovely photos.
