Watch: Hundreds of Birds Become Trapped in Fireplace of California Home

Firefighters in California found themselves with a rather unusual problem on their hands when hundreds of birds somehow wound up stuck in the fireplace of a home. The odd incident reportedly occurred on Sunday evening in the community of Montecito when a resident discovered that approximately 1,000 of the diminutive creatures, later identified as a migratory species known as swifts, had flown down their chimney and could not escape. An eerie video captured at the scene shows the birds fluttering up against a fireplace cover seemingly ready to burst into the residence at any moment.
