'It’s actually a regular event in the Northern Territory, at least: the beginning of the northern wet season also coincides with parrots like the Red-Collared Lorikeet somehow hitting the sauce and staggering into animal shelters to sleep it off.

As Australian Geographic reports, “drunk lorikeet” season is typified by birds falling over, having trouble flying, and colliding with things. Like your average pub drunk, they’re also prone to a parrot version of “I love youse brother”, instead losing their fear of people.

Northern Territory blogger Bob Gosford Tweeted to El Reg that “I’ve seen them roaring drunk and laughing out loud like Irish backpackers”. :)
