They haven't found the left engine yet because they have only been able to search for it about one day out of the last four or five. They can't have the side scan sonar in the water with ice, and the river has had a lot of ice on it since Friday night. Ice can damage the sonar. Divers can only stay in the water a few minutes before they'd freeze, which is why they had to raise the plane to get the recorders out.
As for the birds, they have them on a primary radar screen, as well as both pilots on the CVR talking about the birds flying above and ahead of them.
According to the report, the pilot later explained that the problem involved a stalled compressor, resulting in insufficient air intake to the right engine. However, he said the flight could continue.
Sullenberger was sequestered somewhere for days and not allowed to speak to friends or family and had to be "debriefed" for some reason.
