Amityville Police Department to the Rescue: Detective Bruce Pescitelli contacted the Parrot Fanciers’ Club in regards to a lost parakeet that was found wondering in the in the vicinity of a very busy Route 110 & Merrick Road. Concerned employees of Amity Sports had compassion and contacted the police department, who in turn contacted Parrot Haven, a local organization that houses homeless birds. This gorgeous parakeet had been clipped, but not properly. If there is someone out there who may know whom the owner might be, please contact the Parrot Fanciers’ Club at 631-956-0015. The Parrot Haven policy is to hold all homeless birds for 6 weeks while trying to locate the owners, before placing birds up for adoption. I think it’s great of the police to show care and concern for this little lost soul who weighed in at 25 grams. This scared keet was properly clipped upon arrival to Parrot Haven and spent the next ½ hour with his head buried in a dish of seed and vegetables. This is gorgeous bird and someone out there must be missing her. Update 6/3/02/I received a call from a local pet store after an article appeared in the paper about Sunny. The caller could not give me the right color of the bird, so I was not convinced he was the owner, even though I was told that the bird had flown out the door by the person who saw the bird escape. Sunny was adopted by one of my coworkers and gets along great with her daughter.
