chef-de-jour, thank you for your detailed comments. I know little birds need a lot of food every day yet many of them stay all winter in this cold, cold place.
That's so interesting that little birds will break into the milk to survive.

Yes, it's amazing how long the little birds can survive in the terrible cold because of the insulation their feathers provide. I think I read sometime ago that they can sort of hold the feathers just a bit 'out' which provides more insulation yet.

Thanks for some great information, Caveman Etris.

I know many birds do migrate but the ones I was talking about were there every day and suddenly weren't when the snow fell.
I don't think little birds have nests in the winter. I thought they just make those in the spring so the females can lay their eggs. I'm not sure. I'd better get out my bird books again. Thanks for commenting.
