The situation with birds and an apartment room became eggstreme until people helped. In a one bedroom apartment, cockatiels were free-flying everywhere. The Humane- Society helped rescue a lot of birds from a San Diego apartment. There were more than 80 birds flying around the apartment. They first learned about this when a concerned neighbor told them. The resident then wanted the cockatiels to be removed. They helped because they said that that is what they are there for. The problem started as a hoarding situation and then the birds laid eggs and more were in the room.
