Yes, you read that headline correctly.
Burnsville resident Paul Ryan had quite the shock when a turkey flew into his home – entering straight through a closed window.
He posted the below video to YouTube on Thursday showing the immediate aftermath of the bird's sudden arrival in his son's bedroom, while the bird was still in the house. Proceeding calmly to the bedroom as he gives a running commentary, he pokes the camera in the room to show the turkey standing next to the bed.
The turkey managed to fly its new nest when Ryan pulled down the blinds from the outside, creating an opening it could fit through.
Those living in the house surveyed the wreckage inside the glass-strewn bedroom, which had been pretty much trashed by the turkey.
"It actually came through here and was flying so fast it hit that wall over there, flopped down, and then started flopping around every five minutes," Ryan told KSTP. "It was up and down and knocking things off shelves."
Sure, this is an unusual occurrence, but just Google "turkeys flying into house" and you'll find a whole host of examples of this happening recently around the country.
The Cornell Lab says birds tend to fly into windows during the daytime if it's reflecting a portion of landscape, or if there are flowers/potted plants/vegetation being grown inside the house next to the window. The website has a number of tips on how to prevent this.
