A JetBlue flight heading to Las Vegas from Boston was diverted to JFK in New York after a reported bird strike Monday, according to officials.

JetBlue flight 877 departed from Boston Logan International Airport around 4 p.m. (ET) on its way to Las Vegas Monday. In a statement released by JetBlue, the airline said the plane was diverted "out of an abundance of caution, following a reported bird strike."

No injuries were reported. It was unclear if the plane was damaged.
