Planes Halted at JFK, Turtle power!

I've heard of a lot of reasons for flight delays - equipment malfunction, too much traffic, drunk pilots - but this must be a first.

I was watching a news segment on this and the pilot said he was wondering what was crawling on the ground. He could actually see the 150 little turtles heading out to the bay to nest for the summer.

The turtles were IDed as TMNT - not really. They're diamondback terrapins.
