They eat the berries on the Manitoba Maple, which are fermented. Alcohol makes them fly around crazily or sometimes they are too drunk to hold on to the branch. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving.

Lol, usually it's the waxwings that get those. It's not a Manitoba maple though, it's a mountain ash. Those robins best be heading south soon before the snowfall comes. Cool photo Mike!

I don't know why I was under the impression the tree is a maple. Thanks for correcting. Well, it's so warm and there's still lots of food around for them. Lots of other birds too.

Very different looking from our Robins.

This might also make for a lovely closer cropped image - square perhaps - wish the eyes were a bit sharper tho. Lovely autumn colour here.
