FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Police say a Connecticut woman became concerned when she heard someone calling "Daddy" repeatedly near a school. But when she began looking for a child, she instead found a large green parrot up in a tree.
Fairfield police Lt. James Perez says the fire department used a long pole to remove the bird from the tree at Holland Hill School on Thursday. The parrot then flew onto a bamboo stand. Firefighters chased it out and an animal control officer caught it in a net and brought it to a shelter.
Perez says the bird was talking nonstop saying, "Daddy," ''hello," ''what!" and other words.
The bird was found about one mile from its home. It was later reunited with its owner, who had reported it missing.
