Sweet Nectar For A Robin

The American Robin has a sweet tooth.

Forget about worms, nuts, leaves and twigs, sweet treats such as fruits, berries, sweet cakes, and even pastry dough are among the favorite foods of American Robins.  And because sometimes those berries will be fermented, the birds will appear to be drunk, or exhibit drunken behavior such as falling over when walking.
