Can anyone help me remember the title of a dystopian book I read in the mid-90s?

I read it in the mid-90's, but could possibly have been written earlier than that.

Set in the near future, there is a been a global heatwave, followed by a global ice-age (or maybe the other way around). A man and his son need to keep travelling to find food and shelter.

I'm sure mechanical/robotic birds that start reproducing on their own also feature, but I might be getting my books mixed up.

Counting Crows it is smile Hope you like the book - Russian dystopia is a little different from western ones!
