The winter is approaching and most birds are migrating to warmer countries. Flocks of birds can be seen flying south or when the whole flock stops to eat or rest. We have quite many rowan trees growing in city areas and they are perfect feeding spots for many species of birds. A large flock can eat all berries from a tree in a few hours, but it's also a perfect opportunity to see stunning amounts of birds at once.
Do you see the birds in photo below? Bohemian waxwing.
They often migrate when all rowanberries have been eaten.
I'm not amazed with the distance they can fly, but instead how they can eat rowanberries without choking on them. Just look at it. Even Sasha Grey would be jealous.
I'm not here to tell you about birds though. Or not that much. I'm telling you that birds can get drunk on the berries if the berries have fermented enough. You can see all kinds of
erotic erratic behavior from birds that have filled themselves with fermented berries.
I was lucky to catch one of these stories with my camera - completely by accident.
We'll start with the photo above: the main hero isn't in focus though, but this one:
You see that little hero? That's the bird who's just trying to eat a single berry. Just one more. That'd be enough to make them happy. Doing a great job reaching towards the berry. Nothing can go wrong at this point.
fuck no. How did the berry slip out of the mouth that bad? Goddamit.
Well luckily the birdo doesn't give up easily. The bird has determination, like sad Steem users who are holding grudges for years after they were the ones being pathetic assholes themselves.
There's plenty of berries in the tree, as they say.
Just grab a new one.
You got this.
And you did! You're awesome, birdo! Or should we call you birb? Maybe bird would be the best way to go, but we don't care, you're drunk.
I said you're drunk.
"WHAT? I'm not drunk!"
Yes you are, we all saw how you dropped the first berry.
"AIGSFLÖA AAGKOA I'LL PROVE YOU I'M NODDRUNKK"
I told you you're drunk.
I decided to let the poor drunken bird be alone. I continued taking photos of the waxwings, but after that show with the one dropping the berries, I'm quite sure this one was just bragging.
"Hell yeah we're not all clumsy bastards, look at this!"
