    The group said a strap broke because of strong winds while a volunteer was driving a truck with five birds in crates. The driver didn’t notice the animals were missing until arriving in the Maxton area.

    They said they plan to have people out searching again Friday morning but had to call off the efforts Thursday night because of dangerous conditions.
