Today had been very interesting.  I started the day with about 50 Robins and 
now I have at least 300 trying to strip my four hollies of their berries.  They 
are all drunk!  All afternoon they have flown into the wall of the garage, hit 
the windows and my driveway looks like a bird potty!  I also have two resident 
Mocking Birds who have valiantly defended these four trees all winter but they 
are are no match for the Robins.  I hope the Mockers don't keel over from 
trying to defend their territory!   I've heard of this behavior before but this 
is the first time I have witnessed it.
