There’s A Small Town In The Midwest That’s Being Overrun By Drunken Birds

One small town in Northern Minnesota has been dealing with a high number of drunk and disorderly feathered residents.

The people in Gilbert, Minnesota have been phoning their local police department to report apparently intoxicated birds. The birds have been acting confused and flying into car windows and walls.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Their sense of humor with the whole ordeal certainly lightened the mood, but it is important to note that seeing (nonfictional) birds acting unusually due to consuming fermented berries is not uncommon in Minnesota or elsewhere in the country. No matter where you live, buzzed birds are not a matter for the police department to respond to.

Here’s to hoping our feathered friends don’t experience hangovers like humans do!
