Ah Australia, The Home of Drunken Birds

Red-collared lorikeets in Australia exhibit signs of drunkenness at the end of the rainy season, most likely brought on by drinking fermented nectar.

They behave much the way humans do when inebriated only with a little less screeching and more flapping of wings.

The only thing sadder than a drunken lorikeek is a lorikeet with a massive hangover from swilling plonk. Sweetened porridge and fresh fruit for breakfast ease the hangover.
