[Tweeters] What the hail?

In the midst of a huge hail storm, with some bigger than pea sized hail
stones I saw three chickadees huddled together on the cedar tree out my
living room. About every five minutes they would switch positions and the
cozy middle spot would go to one of the enders. I have read about this
huddling behavior in kinglets and it makes sense that Chickadees, with
similar high body heat and small mass would also huddle.
