canada-geese-in-flight-003 A cell of “kamikaze birds,” as the Post describes them, struck Mayor Bloomberg’s plane on Saturday. He was headed to Senator Ted Kennedy’s funeral in Boston when the feathered fiends attacked over Long Island. The slightly worried pilot radioed ahead and eventually told the mayor who decided not to pass along the info to his party. The plane landed without incident. Officials still haven’t determined the species of bird, but geese and starlings are known to prowl the area. |NYP|
