(AP) Authorities say bird strikes forced two planes to return to New York's Kennedy Airport shortly after takeoff over the weekend.

A JetBlue flight bound for the Dominican Republic returned to the airport without incident after hitting some birds Saturday afternoon.

According to the FAA, a second JetBlue plane hit a bird Sunday morning after it took off for Nassau in the Bahamas.

JetBlue says wasn't a direct hit and the plane returned to the airport as a precaution.

In both incidents, passengers resumed their trips on different planes.
