This is a winged female reproductive ant, likely a Modoc species carpenter ant that has emerged from a satellite nest in your home. Because it is warm in your home, reproductive ants think it is spring and time to leave the nest to start a new nest. They fly to windows attempting to get outside. Trapped inside, they will die.
