Dear Little Birds - I hope They Aren´t Drunk!

I was just sitting out on my caravan terrace in the shade, when I noticed a couple of little Blue Tit´s were enjoying some of the fruits left on my miniature Nispero tree (medlar Fruits)

I had a good crop this year, thanks to a warm, dry spring and some decent rains while the fruits were growing. I only ate a few myself, but gave some to guests and visitors and what´s left on the tree are now brown and shrivelled, but the Tit´s seemed to be having a feast, I just hope they didn´t get drunk on the fermenting fruit. I´ll keep my eye on them and see if their flight gets a bit wobbly LOL emoticon :smile:

When I went to take a picture of the Nispero tree, I saw little spotty was at the base, I wonder if he was there having a nibble on fallen fruit or hoping a fly or two would be attracted by the odour and land within his reach? I tried to get a picture of him too, but he scarpered when my camera got too close and quickly disappeared into the undergrowth.

Now it´s coffee time, and I´ll keep my camera with me just in case something else attracts my attention and is willing to pose.

Here´s a picture of another little spotty, taken last year.

My cat´s used to catch them too, but both cats are no longer with me. Lizards make up for the loss though and i don´t even have to feed them emoticon :smile:

Drunk birds could be an interesting sight to see. Hope little spotty shows back up

It's so neat to read about all the little critters you have in your back yard. Nature provides a nice little floor show when we just take time to sit and watch!

They appeared to be flying a straight line, so must have been sober LOL emoticon :smile:

I look on all the things around here that I see often as pet´s, that doesn´t include the odd snake though emoticon :sad:

Well, I´ll be keeping my eye´s open for any drunken behaviour in that case. And at the first sign I´ll be throwing the fermented fruits in the dustbin LOL emoticon :grin:

That would be a site to see, drunk birds. It is nice that you had a good crop this year.
