Winter weather has arrived in Maine. Subfreezing temperatures make walking from the house to the car or mailbox an ordeal for many folks. Have you  ever wondered how birds can make it through a challenging Maine winter with cold temperatures and short days in which to search for food?

I gave a short talk on this topic for the Waterville Pecha Kucha chapter. Pecha kucha is a type of oral and visual presentation where a speaker presents 20 Powerpoint slides, each automatically displaying for only 20 seconds. It takes a bit of practice to get a pecha kucha talk smooth but the format is a highly  efficient way of transmitting information.  You can do the math to see that a pecha kucha talk requires six minutes  and 40 seconds.
