A bird strike temporarily grounded a Southwest flight out of Mineta San Jose International Airport Wednesday morning.

It happened while Flight 4479 was taxiing before taking off for Seattle.

Ninety passengers were on board the aircraft at the time. It returned to the gate for mechanics to re-inspect and then continued its journey to Seattle.
