Officers picked up the birds on Monday and delivered them to the Winter Park Housing Authority.

“We’d like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the individual who made this kind gesture. While they wish to stay out of the limelight, their act of kindness did not go unnoticed. We are so happy to be a part of making this possible,” reads a statement from the Winter Park Police Department.
