Party Time/ Ruby Tuesday

What makes me think this robin has had too many fermented mountain ash (rowan) berries?

And here's a BONUS photo for Ruby Tuesday, ;-) A sugar maple with orange-red leaves. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

I'm guessing he fell out of the tree.

I did see a robin, like this, today, playing with a feather. He would toss it and then with wings flapping, go get it and toss it again.

In all my lifetime I never saw any bird playing with a feather and having as much fun as this one was having. I thought it was an insect of some kind and grabbed a camera and went out. All I found (he left) was this lonesome feather. Wet from his mouth.

I do enjoy the sharpness and accuracy of your photos.
How do you manage to post such big pics. Mine always come one quarter you your size no matter how may pixels the original uploaded picture has.
I know I have a lot to learn.

Ralph said...

Maybe the fermented berries to the robin are taking hold, and a nap might be in order.

Love the Ontarian foliage!

Rambling Round said...

That robin does look rather unsteady!
Gorgeous sugar maple. We don't have that many colorful trees here in the fall...just a few.

Bobbie in Hawaii said...

Wow, just breathtaking - both of them! What a real Ruby Tuesday treat you gave us today.

An inebriated robin and a gorgeous maple tree, perfect! BJ

Arija said...

So glad your shots have such tremendous clarity, wish I knew how you mamage it. Do you get the birds drunk on purpose so they are too groggy to fly away? It's a puzzlemnt.
I've been doing some Stephen Leacock maths: if A, the bird ate 6tippsy B berries then it follows that C would certainly be wobbly. Therefore, how many leaves are on the maple tree?

Dora said...

Maybe the robin is wondering which berries to eat? ;p

Jim said...

That sugar maple is sure pretty. We don't have any like that here. In fact until late November or later we don't have any trees that change their leaf colors.

Happy Ruby Red Tu, and stay away from the drunken robins. :-)
