Birds Are Acting Erratically in Minnesota. Blame It on the Alcohol

Drunk Birds Causing Havoc In A Town. Cops Say They'll Sober Up Soon More Birds Are Getting Drunk This Year, MN Town Advises Residents

Police in Gilbert, Minnesota issued a statement to address a growing problem in the small city.

"Drunk birds are totally a thing". A surprise frost led local berries to ferment earlier than is typical, and there's a corresponding increase in drunk birds in Gilbert.

"On Tuesday, the department posted a notice on Facebook warning citizens that it has received several reports of birds that appear to be "'under the influence' flying into windows, cars and acting confused".

Police in northern Minnesota are asking the public to please stop calling them about the influx of "drunk" birds flying around.

"Oh my! That explains all the birds bouncing off my window lately!" said one. As James Owen explained in a 2014 piece for National Geographic, freezing prompts berries to convert starches into sugars, and when the berries subsequently thaw, "it [is] possible for yeast to get in" and expedite fermentation.

Numerous species who have overindulged on the boozy berries traditionally fly south for winter, leading them to gorge on the fruit in a bid to build up fat for the journey. Young birds may be particularly susceptible to drunkenness because their livers have not grown large enough to handle the unintentional imbibing.

The police department says there's no need to panic, the birds will eventually sober up.

The Gilbert Police Department post said the birds will likely sober up soon after the fermented berries are eaten and asked locals not to call unless they see "Angry Birds laughing and giggling uncontrollably and appearing to be happy" or "Tweety acting as if 10 feet tall and getting into confrontations with cats".
