"AA To Include Bird Members"

There are these cute little birds called “cedar waxwings”. These little birds like to eat red holly berries that grow in South Carolina. Well apparently, these pretty red berries were making these cute little birds drunker than a frat boy on Saturday night, and these birds wound up crashing into the glass walls of a courtyard and killing themselves. Not one or two, but several birds took their lives in front of dozens of people. This is perhaps the funniest thing I have ever heard. I found myself laughing hysterically when I saw this story on the news and later read it on the Tampa Tribune’s website. According to the article, the birds began to get loopy after eating the berries and began to fall off of branches and crash into the glass walls surrounding a nearby courtyard. About one hundred birds crashed into the windows, and about fifty of those died. Groundskeepers are trying to protect the birds by putting a net around the dangerous bushes.
Okay, you have to admit that this is pretty funny. I mean, how often do you hear about cute little birds getting smashed off of red berries and falling out of trees? Even the Bay News 9 anchorwoman was snickering while she delivered this story. I only wish I was there to see the spectacle in action!
