'Dark-eyed Junco' (Junco hyemalis) - birds can control the temperature of their legs and feet separately from their bodies by constricting blood flow to these extremities, thus reducing heat loss. Their legs and feet are covered with specialized scales that also minimize loss of body heat ~●≈Renáta's∞Realm≈●~
