I had the following exchange with a tower controller immediately after takeoff.

Me: Tower, I'd like to report a bird strike during takeoff.  I don't believe there's any damage to the aircraft, but you'll need to have someone check for any bird parts on the runway.

Tower: Was it a small bird?

Me:  It is now.
