We hope they are not drinking and flying!
We're not sure if you knew this, but there a wide variety of birds who occasionally like to get wasted!
The waxwings of North America have been known to get so drunk off rotting chokecherries that they would fall off their trees and could only respond to researchers by hissing.
Sounds a lot like your drunk uncle, no?
The bananaquit of Latin America also known as the "yellow bird" can chug alcohol of 4-6% proof and not only that but can hold its liquor very well. We have a feeling it would be very good at beer pong if it had, you know, hands and stuff.
But not only birds like to get their drink on.
Recently, a wood mouse somehow squeezed into a bottle of red wine, and afterwards was so drunk the mouse couldn't even get out!
Sounds like that mouse needs to head to AA asap!!!
