Sounds like a bird strike and perhaps multiple birds involved.

From a person who was on that flight, on the MSY Spotters Fbook page:

"We were on this flight. During takeoff, left engine hit a bunch of birds. The left side of the plane began vibrating and was a normally loud. Pilot explained what happened, told us he was going through the checklist, decided to land. Fire engines okay ed the plane to gate, then plane was taken out of service. Everyone clapped as we landed. The pilots did an amazing job keeping everyone calm."
