Cries for ‘Daddy’ lead to missing parrot

With the help of a Good Samaritan, Fairfield police officers were able to return a green Amazon parrot to its owner after first fearing it was a missing child.

A woman walking in the area of Holland Hill Elementary School around 5 p.m. Wednesday heard what sounded like a child’s voice repeatedly calling out “Daddy” in the nearby woods, according to the police report.

Police said the Good Samaritan searched the wooded area, and realized the voice was coming from a tree and contacted police.

When officers arrived, they realized the voice was coming from a large bird in the tree. Animal Control was called to help get the bird down, police said.

A short time later, the Fire Department was called as the bird was about 25 feet high in the tree’s branches.

Using a long pole, the firefighters were able to get the bird out of the tree and into a small bamboo area, where they safely netted it.

The bird was taken to the Animal Control shelter and picked up a short time later by its owner, police said. The owner said the bird had been missing since Tuesday.

Fairfield Deputy Police Chief Chris Lyddy said, “The Good Samaritan should be commended. We are very grateful for all the actions she took in helping the situation. It’s nice to have a happy ending.”
