Bird keeps airport officials on tenterhooks

Bird keeps airport officials on tenterhooks - Sify.com: "A month ago, a black cat caused a flutter in Chennai airport. Now, it is the turn of a black bird to keep the airport authorities on tenterhooks! Intrusion of a crow into the domestic terminal of the airport gave tough time to officials as they tried to shoo it away.

The bird hopped from one place to another as some looked on with amusement and the officials finally had success only after a half hour chase. Airports are normally kept bird-free to avoid possible accidents when they get sucked into the aircraft engine. "
