Last week a small flock of budgies were found on a Laguna Niguel trail. Mission Viejo Animal Services arrived and rounded up the budgies. The budgies were not able to fly and some appeared to have been injured by large birds.
The birds were fed and given water, given names and examined. They will be put up for adoption.
If you should find yourself unable to care for your birds, please do not set them free. Budgies are not likely to survive in the wild. Finding food and water is problematic, and they are likely to be attacked by animals and other birds.
Taking them to a shelter or rescue is their best chance for finding a safe, happy home.

What an awful and cruel person to have done such a thing. Those poor babies 🙁
A horror story with a happy ending. It’s wonderful that that hiker had the sense to realize that these guys were in trouble, and knew what to do. And that the Mission Viejo shelter responded so efficiently. I hope these babies find loving homes!
I wish I could take them all in.
Well, you could….
