Birds eat fermented berries, get drunk
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Dozens of birds got drunk from eating holly berries, then crashed into the glass of an office building.
"It was like an Alfred Hitchcock movie," worker Denise Wilkinson said. "It was spooky. You could hear them where they flew into the glass."
Warm weather and an ample supply of berries attracted hundreds of cedar waxwings into the enclosed courtyard of the three-story building Tuesday.
The birds began getting drunk on the fermented berries. They got so loopy that some were falling off branches and others were slamming into the glass walls that enclose the courtyard.
