Authorities say bird strikes forced two planes to return to Kennedy Airport shortly after takeoff over the weekend.

 
A JetBlue flight bound for the Dominican Republic about 3:30 p.m. Saturday returned to the airport without incident after hitting some birds.
 
According to the FAA, a second JetBlue plane hit a bird Sunday morning after it took off for Nassau in the Bahamas.
 
JetBlue told the New York Post it 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.
