These Finnish Bohemian Wax wings showed up on my homepage this morning and I thought them fascinating.  Seems they flock together and feast on berries that can ferment causing the birds to get somewhat "tipsy".

Yes Bob, I've seen them sometimes feasting on the probably fermented berries on the rowan (or mountain ash) and hawthorns on my yard. They come in a flock of hundred or so birds and in less than an hour the tree is empty. I like them, they look different compared to other birds. And I wonder where they hide the remaining 364 days of the year Smile

This year the fieldfares (not my favourites) got there first, so no waxwing sighting this year for me. Thanks for the pictures!

Those birds are more civilized drinkers than an average Finn lol! They do get a bit loud though Happy New Year

Actually I have heard that their bird-brain is quite resistant to alcohol, so they stay "operational" and probably won't get a hangover either. But alcohol keeps the berries soft, and contains a lot of calories that the little ones need to keep warm in the cold.

Fascinating creatures Smile
