Arrgh, Where Be Me Bird?

So a few weeks ago I was walking over to the church when I kept on hearing this bizarre noise. I couldn't really figure out what it was. As I got closer to the church I thought it must be a bird but it was making noises unlike any bird I hear around these parts. I started looking up into the huge trees that border the church when I heard the noise again. I turned to look at the playground back on the other side of the fence and I spotted a beautiful huge parrot just sitting in the playground house. If you look closely at the photo above you can see it. I was freaking out because this was a big bird and I'm pretty sure a very expensive one. I thought someone is really missing it. I took a photo with my iPhone just for proof. After I got to the church I found the camera I use for photographing new families and went back to get a better photo. By then there was a man with the bird. Apparently the bird wasn't there alone. I was relieved that at least he wasn't lost. The owner told me that the bird is worth $12,000 and can't fly anyway. Well at least I got a good photo of it. And I was happy that he wasn't lost.

When my husband and I lived in Holladay our neighbor friends were outside with us and their bird. We were all completely stunned when the naughty bird flew away. Our friend never found his bird.

So hiding in the trees of Holladay is a loud naughty bird...
but, bratty birds become beacons for big burly beasts that beseech an easy brunch. So really he's probably history.

What a gorgeous, vivid photo! I'm glad everything worked out all right for the boid.
