Still, staffers at Greyhaven have a daunting task ahead of them. In addition to the sorry state of so many birds at the dilapidated former sanctuary, they have to find new living spaces for them in just weeks.
Greyhaven hopes to succeed by rehoming as many birds as it can, while finding a space for the rest of the birds to live out their lives.
"We're going to have to find a building," Tamas says. "In fact, we've got a lead on one now. We don't believe in euthanasia."
But the road to rehoming so many exotic birds - the drive is being reported as the biggest bird adoption the country has ever seen - is paved in peril.
The last thing these rescuers want is for the parrots and cockatoos to fall into the wrong hands. Again.
"Unfortunately, there are breeders who would like to get their hands on these birds and we are against breeding. We are absolutely against it," Tamas explains.
