Bird hops a flight from Kurdistan to Austria

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — A finch from Kurdistan was refused entry into Austria after it unbeknownst to flight crew boarded a plane in Erbil on Monday.

Authorities at the airport in Vienna did not permit the foreign bird to enter the country.

It wasn't until the plane was in the air the flight crew noticed the special passenger.

Vienna airport emailed Erbil International Airport to inform them of the bird and then put it into a box and sent it back to Erbil.

"It is normal in every country. The sky is open to planes. Birds can fly anywhere they want. Erbil has plains and there are lots of these birds here. They can enter the airport and come into the terminal," said EIA Operation Manager Sulaiman Taha.

even birds immigrate from Kurdistan. Eventually all will people disappear and Turks will celebrate. Thanks to our mentality; leave everything behind for the false dream. No love or loyalty to family, friend, memories,history,culture. It is like knocking at neighbour's door asking to live there because we think it is better home than ours.

@Hishyar Zaxoy No , but I think Turks will celebrate when you and your people will leave Turkey , for sure. You came as refugees when fleeing Shah Ismail and later with Saddam. Ungrateful people is the kurds , I know you from Switzerland and Sweden.

@josfe You invaded kurdish territory, Turkey doesn't even exist, it was created by the british. the kurds went to kurdish territory of turkey. You ungrateful parasite. Just wait a few years and there will be no turkey.
