( JACKSON , WY ) – Administrators at the Jackson Hole Airport are looking into ways to reduce bird strikes during takeoffs and landings. They estimate that nearly half of the 64 recorded bird strikes over the past 19 years have involved sage grouse. Birds hitting planes are among the leading causes of aircraft accidents in the U.S. , including the infamous “Miracle on the Hudson ” incident in 2009. Officials plan to hold a public workshop to discuss management options this Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Snow King Resort.
