Meet our latest “rescue”,
and in every sense of the word it was. On September 1st.a neighbor
around the corner called to ask if one of our birds got loose. She said there
was a parrot of some kind flying around and thought it might have been ours.
So off around the corner
I go. Sure enough there is a parrot flying around being terrorized by a hoard
of neighborhood brats. After telling them to not go near the bird, which kept
flying away from them anyway, I walked over and it hopped on my hand and ran up my shoulder.
I almost made it home before it flew onto a porch, but I made quick work of capturing it with my shirt.
But we made it back and
it got an immediate wing clip, where I almost cut the poor guys toe off and then he/she made itself at home.
