HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Power has been restored for most residents in Holland after thousands were without power Sunday afternoon because of birds, Consumers Energy said.

According to the Consumers Energy map, over 2,600 people were without power.

The map shows the outage was first reported just before 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Power was estimated to be restored around 1:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, Consumers Energy said. As of 4 p.m., two residents were without power.

A spokesperson for the company said birds were in the sub station and that ultimately caused the outage.
