LIMA, Peru (Meredith) -- Just take a look at these beaches in Lima, Peru.

The government there declared a mandatory national lockdown to fight the pandemic, which left the beaches empty.

This has caused thousands of birds to flock to Lima’s green coast this week. This phenomenon coincides with the return migration of birds.

According to TV Peru, the birds will continue on their normal path in just a few days.

But for now, they are treating themselves to some human-free beach time.
