Fan appears to be OK after Seattle Seahawks mascot claws his head

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. It's said that if a bird poops on you, it's good luck. An entire hawk landing on you, talons first - not really. Seattle Seahawks mascot, Taima, normally flies around the stadium, then alights on its handler's padded arm. But at last night's game against the Rams, Taima ended up on a fan's head. The man appeared to be OK, though. Now, unlike foul balls in baseball, he did have to give the bird back. And to make matters worse, his Seahawks lost.
