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!

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
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.
Ahh, he made a deposited on your Car? Whatever, he and the tree are lovely.
Lovely photos with lovely reds!
Maple trees!!! the best when red trees are talked about! Beautiful!
Oh, that tree! I have oohed and aahed all day long over the trees, and this one is just so beautiful, too!
These are great and I like all of that red. :-)
Wow, real beautiful (and red) fall shots !
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.
Canada' Sugar Maples are a one the nature's 7 wonders.
Those berries! That sugar maple! Incredible shots, EG! Happy Ruby Tuesday! Mr. Linky is up now... :)
funny thought and Gorgeous tree
Maybe the fermented berries to the robin are taking hold, and a nap might be in order.
Love the Ontarian foliage!
love the tree...♥♥
Happy Ruby Tuesday!!
Chips and Salsa and
Shabu-shabu on the go
Love those red leaves! No wonder Canada chose the red maple leag to adorn the national flag!
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving, what a glorious weekend it was !
That robin does look rather unsteady!
Gorgeous sugar maple. We don't have that many colorful trees here in the fall...just a few.
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
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?
Maybe the robin is wondering which berries to eat? ;p
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. :-)
Wow! Just GORGEOUS photos!
Super posts for Ruby Tuesday. Those berries! And I love the sunset photo down a bit. Wow! No wonder you received so many comments. I also posted leaves for RT so come look if you have a chance.
Great shots! LOVE LOVE LOVE that tree :)
Beautiful tree...thankyou...and the honeysuckle too.
Thanks for your visit to my blog also for Today's Flowers..
Love the red of those berries in contrast with the colours of the robin!
And the maple leaves are just glorious!
Well, I must say I just loved the robin on your photo but when it came to the maple tree ... wowwww!!!
That is a true blessing to all our senses. What beauty.
This robin is definitely not going hungry for sure! :P
Happy Ruby Tuesday :)
Beautiful pictures !!
I don't participate in Ruby Tuesday but I enjoy the shots from bloggers. These are fantastic.
Silly Robin, a little tipsy is he/she? They love the Mountain Ash.
I came back--darn!! LOL MB
The bird does look a little drunk doesn’t it?
Page 2: BTW--Happy Thanksgiving--yesterday. MB
the bird photo is stupendous... what zoom have you used...
Both are beautiful shots. Happy Ruby Tuesday.
Is it that unsteady look in his eye? ;D Beautiful photos - definitely "wow" worthy.
He does seem a bit plastered, luckily he appears to be holding on tight
the tree is magnificent
Your photos are amazingly beautiful!!
I think you have outdone yourself!
These are gorgeous!
Fantastic photos. The bird is so lovely! beautiful colors in those shots too:)
No I have the taken photos of the houses with the grass-roof if you want to see. They are at my blog now:)
I LOVE these trees!!! Great Shot!
Nice shots. I hope the robin heads south soon.
Oh my God, that tree is ruby!!!! Wonderful, I wish we had ruby trees like that!
You photos are always so stunning. These are just beautiful as are the photos down and up the page. Love that blue jay in the bird bath.
LOL..I have not seen a robin since the summer....
Beautiful reds! I just love red berries in the Fall. I'm always looking for them.
Wow...I missed these and they are so wonderful! Glad I went back and found them. Those ash berries sure seem to be popular with robins.
Gorgeous (red) pictures, love that bird one!
