    • Emergency personnel reportedly told reporters that they are not releasing any information about the birds’ status without prior consent from the birds.
      However, a bird by the name of ‘Larry’ – who happens to be a close friend of one of the birds involved in the collision – told reporters on Saturday that all of the birds are in excellent condition, except for one bird, who lost several feathers during the smash-up and also suffered a mild panick attack.
      However, Larry also told reporters that the aforementioned bird was released from the veterinary ward this evening, and is currently chowing down a delicious meal of worms with his family and friends in his newly-built, three bedroom nest.
