'Drunk birds' flying into windows, cars in northern Minnesota

Officials in Gilbert Minnesota warned the birds-

"The Gilbert Police Department has received several reports of birds that appear to be "under the influence" flying into windows, cars and acting confused", Gilbert Police Chief Ty Techar wrote in a statement that both acknowledged the odd happenings and poked fun at them. In Gilbert, an early frost has fermented local berries, leading to young birds getting drunk from eating them.

He added: 'It appears that some birds are getting a little more "tipsy" than normal.

This has caused the interesting and odd occurrence of drunken birds to seem more prevalent than previous years.
