Birds

A cold weather bird

Day 10 - Interlaken to Jungfraujoch


Jungfrau, Switzerland. May 2013.

He looks like he's wearing a warm cloak.
He kind of reminds me of Snape from Harry Potter.
It always amazes me how birds can tolerate very cold weather.
I know nothing about birds, so not sure if their feathers come in thicker or what...
They have a layer of down underneath their feathers that keeps them warm. But I always wonder how their bare legs stand the cold!
Somehow you can tell that that bird is feeling the cold!
We certainly were.
Look at him all puffed up and huddled for warmth.
He was quite brave considering it was below zero.
That is a wonderful photo.
Thank you. The visibility was so poor that day; he was about the only thing I could get a picture of outside.
All fluffed up! I'm always in awe of how birds survive in the winter and snow.

Me too, because we were freezing.
He looks cold
I know we sure were.
