Owner has advised 911PA that Scurvy was found.
Scurvy is lost in the Pleasant Hill Rd/Highland Ave/Chamberlain Rd area of Scarb. He is a friendly bird and pretty social with most strangers. Like most birds, he will startle at loud noises and other birds flying around – even if a leaf would float by a window.

He flies in the house, and will sometimes come to you if you say “Scurvy come” with your left hand and index finger out. He sometimes overshoots and lands on your head or shoulders when he flies to us in the house. If he is perched on something within your reach, put your right index finger up to him just about his feet and say “step up” in a happy voice. He is very particular about which hand he will get on in which situation. He will often feel comforted or come to you if you also make ‘kissy’ noises. Be slow and calm.

Scurvy loves fruit and veggies, and gets very excited when he sees us holding or cutting red or green things. He recognizes strawberries, cucumber, grapes, apples, bananas, lettuce, bowls of milk or plain yogurt and more as delicious food worth flying to get.

He is 5 years old. I’ve had him since he was 3 mos old and he has never been outside, other than in his carrier to occasionally go to the Vet. He is probably terrified and flying in random starts and stops when he hears or sees something scary. I’m not sure of gender, we just always use the male gender.
