Are those Starlings? If not, what are those birds?
 
I love that bear! I s'pose he's sleeping about now, huh?

Crows, crows everywhere, lol.
 
 
And, the bears around here don't really "hibernate".  They go into a different kind of sleep, and sometimes depending on weather, stay active all year.
 
I'll post a link to an article about it sometime when I find it.

Are all "hibernators" the same?

No. Some animals are classified as "deep hibernators". Deep hibernation is a state in which an animal is inactive for many days or weeks. In deep hibernation the animal's body temperature drops to around five degrees C. Deep hibernation has also been called "true hibernation". Other animals exhibit a less profound inactive state called "torpor". Torpor may be very short-term (the cold hours of the night, for example) and involves the drop of the animal's body temperature to no less that fifteen degrees C. An animal in torpor is also capable of relatively quick arousal.

 

I've read a better article describing this, but can't find it right now.

Dang, they look so tiny!! Our crow are humongous - I mean, they are the biggest freakin' birds you'd ever see (ok, not really, but....). And they walk down the sidewalk, up the driveway, etc., just like anyone taking a walk, lol.
 
I love crow.
 
Didn't know that about the torpor - never heard of it before. Interesting stuff - I feel educated now, lol. I'm guessing that applies to the bear?

Yea, I mean, sometimes we might see one walking around in the middle of winter!  I don't know, they ( the scientists and so-called experts ) have to make things complicated sometimes, I guess.  I just remember reading something about the bears in Pennsylvania don't really hibernate.
