The only one I can recall was a few years ago in Cleveland but I don’t believe it was a fly ball, it was more like a line drive hit into the front part of the outfield.
If memory serves the birds were seagulls and the hit in question bounced off one of the birds and eluded the outfielder. I think the winning run scored on the play as well.

I don't recall a bird ever being hit by a fly ball in a game however; Randy Johnson threw a pitch that hit a bird in mid flight. The bird lost!
When you consider the amount of space and the size of the 2 objects (bird & ball) it's an amazingly rare event.
Never heard of a batted ball hitting a bird. There was Randy Johnson hitting the dove that has been mentioned, also in 1983 Dave Winfield hit and killed a Seagull with a warmup throw in Toronto.
