More Birds Are Getting Drunk This Year, MN Town Advises Residents
"The Gilbert Police Department has received several reports of birds that appear to be "under the influence" flying into windows, cars and acting confused", Gilbert Police Chief Ty Techar wrote in a statement that both acknowledged the odd happenings and poked fun at them. In Gilbert, an early frost has fermented local berries, leading to young birds getting drunk from eating them.
He added: 'It appears that some birds are getting a little more "tipsy" than normal.
This has caused the interesting and odd occurrence of drunken birds to seem more prevalent than previous years.
"Generally, younger birds" livers can not handle the toxins as efficiently as more mature birds'. In comments responding to the statement on Facebook, Gilbert residents shared stories of erratic bird behavior.
He said robins, cedar waxwings and thrushes are the bird species most likely to tie one on since they eat more berries than other species. "Luckily only one has passed on!"
"This explains why I have hit seven birds with my vehicle this week", another commented. Berry fermentation is the answer. Some birds even slur their speech, errr... song, while inebriated.
"Furthermore, specific syllables, which have distinct acoustic structures, were differentially influenced by alcohol, likely reflecting a diversity in the neural mechanisms required for their production".
The Gilbert Minnesota Police Department says they've received several reports of intoxicated bird sightings.
