All tested blood parameters are within the expected range for birds (Tab. 1). Starlings show a high rate of alcohol resorption. Experimentally ingested (per os) doses of 1, 2 and 3 g/kg ethanol (10 %-solution) were completely absorbed from the digestive tract within at least 30 min. Extraintestinal metabolic alcohol degradation is also very fast. Within 130 min even 3 g/kg ethanol were completely metabolised (blood alcohol values did not exceed 145 mg/l; Tab. 2, Fig. a). Alcoholdehydrogenase… 

Der Einfluß der Mauser auf Blutparameter beim StarSturnus vulgaris

Moulting Starlings (n=9) show increased plasma values of glucose: 314,2±24,96 mg/dl; the corresponding values were 277,5±28,8 for non-moulting birds (mean value over all periods: 295,6±32,2 mg/dl).

Sugars are complementary resources to ethanol in foods consumed by Egyptian fruit bats

Although fructose enhanced the rate at which ethanol declined in Egyptian fruit bat breath more than the other sugars, the bats treated both fructose and sucrose as complementary to ethanol, suggesting that in the wild, the amount of ethanol-containing fruit consumed or rejected by Egyptian fruit bats may be related to the fruit's own sugar content and composition, and/or the near-by availability of other sucrose- and fructose-containing fruits.

Strong circumstantial evidence for ethanol toxicosis in Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum)

Necropsy examination revealed that all birds had engorged themselves with over-ripe berries of the Brazilian Pepper Tree and had hemorrhages in the breast muscles and the coelomic cavity due to hepatic rupture.

Drinking and Flying: Does Alcohol Consumption Affect the Flight and Echolocation Performance of Phyllostomid Bats?

Background In the wild, frugivorous and nectarivorous bats often eat fermenting fruits and nectar, and thus may consume levels of ethanol that could induce inebriation. To understand if consumption

Birds Drinking Alcohol: Species and Relationship with People. A Review of Information from Scientific Literature and Social Media

Which species and sources of ethanol are most frequently used by captive and wild birds are investigated and parrots in particular can be potentially good candidates for future restricted laboratory studies on the effect of ethanol on birds and their relationship with humans.

Frugivorie bei mitteleuropäischen Vögeln

Im Rahmen einer Freilandstudie wurde der Mutualismus zwischen frugivoren Vogeln und ornithochoren Pflanzen untersucht, wobei sich die folgenden drei wesentlichen Ergebnisse zeigten: 1.
