It seems avian attackers were the cause behind a power outage in downtown Oklahoma City that left about 1,500 customers without power, Wednesday evening.

An OG&E spokesman tells News 9 birds caused some kind of mechanical failure in a transformer that started the problem.

Power has since been restored.
