Birds in Gilbert, Minnesota have been crashing into things like windshields and trees more often lately, sending the town into confusion.

Generally, they've been a bit disoriented, too, but the Gilbert Police Department tells the town not to worry, the birds are just drunk.  Gilbert Police Chief Ty Techar wrote in a post on Facebook, "It appears some birds are getting a little more 'tipsy' than normal."

Apparently, the birds are eating berries that have fermented earlier due to an early frost. 

If anybody happens to come across a drunk bird, the Gilbert PD recommend placing it in a cool, dark place so it can recuperate, or take it out and keep the party going.
