There are 4 possible answers to this puzzle,depending upon the play of english used in the puzzle.

the 4 possible answers are 66,67,198,199

Logic for 66 & 67 :

To make the birds hundred you need to add half of us + 1,

So 66 + 66/2 + 1 = 100.

Now if the bird they met is flying then answer is 66+1=67 or

if the bird they met is not flying then 66 is the answer.

Now logic for 198 and 199 answer :

They said we need half of us.. it may also mean that they are more than 100

and need only half of them + 1 to make them 100.

So they are 198, and hence 198/2 = 99 + 1 = 100.

Now similary like above the bird they met , may be flying or sitting

Hence total birds flying can be 198 or 199 depending on the bird they met.

**So the answers can be 66,67,198,199**
