The black-capped chickadee handles Alaska’s subzero temperatures due to its ability to convert seeds to fat quickly. Their plumage acts as insulation and they can gain eight percent of their body weight every day. At night they drop their body temperature to conserve fuel needed for foraging the next day.
What a memory! A chickadee can remember thousands of places it has cached seeds for a rainy day. Listen for its two or three-note song that sounds like, “Hey, Sweetie!”
And be reminded that Jesus tells us “…not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.” (Matt. 10:29 NLT)
