Weather, fueling, and maintenance problems might be common reasons for plane delays, but a Delta plane en route to Atlanta was forced to turn back on Saturday, Dec. 30 for a more unusual reason.

Delta Flight 1943 at Detroit Metro Airport bound for Atlanta was taxiing to the runway when the captain turned it back to the gate for something he had never seen in his 20 years as a pilot - a small bird snuck on board and was in the cockpit.

Officials determined it had entered the plane during boarding and flown into the cockpit.

The plane landed without incident and the bird was finally caught and set free, reported Fox News, citing airport officials. The pilot announced they may have to do a plane swap after crews were not able to locate the bird.
