Default Re: A bird in the hand...

I was always amazed that tiny little birds like chickadees and nuthatches could make it through the winter up here. All the way to the south slope of the Brooks range, where winter is LONG and COLD. The smaller you are, the harder it is to keep warm. Many northern species hibernate. Also, many of the smaller birds fly south for the winter, BUT NOT THE SMALLEST ONES! Amazing!
