Today we got home from our church picnic and were having a quiet evening. Suddenly, the silence was broken by familiar parrotlike shrieks and shouts of “Hello?” Turns out that the neighbor’s parrot flew away and was stuck high, high up in a tree next to our house. They apparently have been trying all day to coax it down to no avail.
He was difficult to see, far less photograph, because he was so green and so high up. Would you believe that the above photo (by far the best one) was taken by Jonathan?
While I was writing this post, apparently the parrot’s owners had called a local tree service to bring the parrot (whose name is Pedro) down. The tree guy came with a bucket truck and Pedro’s owner actually got up into the bucket with the tree guy and they succeeded in getting Pedro back down.
Our boys went out in their PJ’s to watch. We haven’t had so much excitement on our street since we moved here!
I am so glad we don’t have pets.
