So how do the small birds stay warm in the winter?
They fluff their feathers, which traps air between their feathers and bodies to create a natural layer of insulation. They sleep with their bills under their wing feathers and breathe in warmer air. Their food gives them energy to shiver and generate warmth. And of course they seek shelter out of the wind and cold. Some, such as the chickadees & titmice, huddle together in natural shelters like bushes. Also nesting boxes become roosting boxes in the winter. Or there are also roosting pockets.
