Wild New Zealand wood pigeon is drunk on forest berries

A woodpigeon native to New Zealand called the Kereru drunkenly sways upside-down from a branch in the breeze.

The bird is known for gorging itself on fermented forest berries, and occasionally falling out of trees afterwards.

The Kereru was recently named New Zealand's 2018 "bird of the year". Conservation group Forest and Bird, which spearheaded the competition, termed the creature “clumsy, drunk, gluttonous and glamorous.”

The filmer captured the footage in September last year in Waingaro.
