As hugs help reduce stress and maintain a healthy blood pressure in human body, birds also benefit from this practice. Cuddling is one of the adaptation methods in birds to cope with harsh winters. In extremely low temperature, birds huddle together and share heat of their bodies to help them survive. Unlike other animals, birds lack extra fat layers in their bodies for insulation.

This increases the rate of metabolism and energy or heat released as a result keep these birds warm in long cold seasons. Some birds can even keep their body temperature at 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
