I have posted this on the New Orleans and Gulfport/Biloxi Craigslist, and I have searched as far as the Mobile, Alabama Craigslist and also the area online newspapers such as Nola and Sun Herald. A Hurricane Isaac worker found a tiny fully flighted adult parrot with no band in the back bay of Biloxi. He was unable to locate the owners, and he left the little bird with me since he had to fly back home. I will be happy to return the bird to the rightful owners, but since there is no band, I am asking people to send a photo/description if they think it's their bird. If you guys have a better idea, let me know. I am happy to keep this bird but I also feel like there is a moral obligation to try to locate the original owner...

I have already clipped the wings and started giving some training lessons, and this little bird is sharp as a tack. I don't think she would learn this fast (as an adult) unless she had previously been tamed, so I have to wonder if she is someone's pet. It seems only right to try to find the original owners. However, we are losing our hearts to this cutie....

The only responses we have had to the ad are for much larger birds, cockatiels on up through mini macaws.

I'm wondering how long people feel they should leave up these ads. Anyone who evacuated Biloxi for Hurricane Isaac has been back WAY long enough to notice whether or not a bird is missing.

It wasn't a Senegal was it? They are very sharp--but has a grey head--green, orange or yellow...


Thanks,

No. I apologize for not seeing this earlier but, no, she is not a Senegal. I have not been able to find the original owners, but she has turned out to be a good pet and she has a home here with us.
