The Associated Press reports that a family near a “City of Newark” somewhere on the East Coast — go figure — recently got a surprise from the sky. Here’s the story:

LIVINGSTON, N.J. — This isn’t a regular wake-up call. A wild turkey, standing roughly two feet tall, crashed through the double-paned window of a Livingston family’s home Sunday morning.

The sound was so loud that homeowner Lena Rosenblum told The Star-Ledger of Newark she thought it was a tree crashing through the roof. The bird appeared to be uninjured.

The family called police, but when officers arrived, a beep from one of their walkie-talkies startled the bird, which flew back into the woods.
