“Snow Day in Norfolk”
The snow storm that is moving across the mid-Atlantic is dropping significant snowfall on the Norfolk Botanical Garden. While this pair of eagles don't often deal with this type of weather - bald eagles are extremely well adapted to cold weather and snow. Their feathers are great insulation - trapping body heat and keeping the birds warm and dry. The insulation works so well that its not uncommon to see snow build up on an eagles back - it doesn't melt because the bird's body heat remains close to its skin.
