Poofy Birds

The weather has turned cold again. We have lots of birds at our feeders.

This is a picture of one of our bird friends. He is an American Finch. He is very cold.

How do I know that he is cold? He has poofed out his feathers to keep warm. When a bird puffs his feathers, the air between the feathers adds warmth.

Are the birds in your backyard cold?
