WONDERFUL NEWS — our parrot was found by a family in our area! To this family that found our bird – thank you, thank you, thank you – we appreciate you caring for Rocky and keeping her safe from danger. We are very, very excited about getting her back home with us!!!! Her 13 year companion bird, Harry (a cockatiel) will also be extremely happy to have her return. Please call me — Susan 296.9697 – to make arrangements for her to be picked up. LOST PETS do find their ways home — thanks to Craigslist readers and people willing to reach out and help each other. I can’t begin to express how very grateful I am.


Our African Gray Parrot, Rocky has been a beloved member of our family for just over 30 years. She has full-flight feathers but only flies from a perch to the ground and then walks, and has never flown out of the house — until now. Our family is devastated and heart-broken. A neighbor thought he saw her fly into one of the two 50 year old trees in our backyard. So, Rocky’s cage was moved out into the backyard in clear view of the huge trees. Her best friend for 13 years, our cockatiel Harry spends his day now in his cage next to hers in our backyard, calling and singing to her. She has not answered … she came as a baby and grew up with children, dogs and cats, so she is very trusting of creatures of all shapes and sizes. She has an extensive vocabulary and singing/whistling/humming range. We live at the corner of Watt Avenue and Elkhorn Blvd in North Highlands, CA — very busy intersection with alot of traffic noices. Other than walking the neighborhood to continue searching for her, delivering and posting flyers, and contacting the Bird Shoppe (a retail bird store within 10 miles), and veterinarians in the vicinity — does anyone else have any ideas for helping her find her way home? Please feel free to cross-post this information, tweet it, and post on Facebook accounts. ANY way you can spread the word would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
