  13. 13. Animals’ life in winter • To survive the harshness of winter, many animals have developed different behavioral and morphological adaptations for overwintering: • Migration is a common effect of winter upon animals, notably birds.
  14. 14. Birds’ life • Many migratory birds could bear without problems but low winter temperatures with decreasing temperature-rise and sources of food disappearing. Insects disappear, the earth will be frozen and covered with snow state and swamps and rivers will freeze. All birds that depend on these food sources will have to migrate in search of favorable living conditions.
  15. 15. • The most famous migratory birds in our area are the swallow and the stork.

  17. 17. Hibernate • Some animals hibernate for part or all of the winter. This is a special, very deep sleep. The animal's body temperature drops, and its heartbeat and breathing slow down. It uses very little energy.
  18. 18. • In the fall, these animals get ready for winter by eating extra food and storing it as body fat. They use this fat for energy while hibernating. Some also store food like nuts or acorns to eat later in the winter. Bears, skunks, chipmunks, and some bats hibernate.
  19. 19. • Some animals remain active in the winter. They must adapt to the changing weather. Many make changes in their behavior or bodies. To keep warm, animals may grow new, thicker fur in the fall. On weasels and snowshoe rabbits, the new fur is white to help them hide in the snow.
  20. 20. • Food is hard to find in the winter. Some animals, like squirrels, mice and beavers, gather extra food in the fall and store it to eat later. Some, like rabbits and deer, spend winter looking for moss, twigs, bark and leaves to eat. Other animals eat different kinds of food as the seasons change. The red fox eats fruit and insects in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter, it can not find these things, so instead it eats small rodents.
