On February 4, Janette Andrews Foster snapped photos of an escaped Crimson Rosella in Reading Center. You can see them on the ABA "What's This Bird" Facebook page; just navigate to the page and then put "rosella" in the search bar.
I lost mine recently (not to the outdoors, sadly). They make sociable pets as they enjoy interaction, but they are more of an aviary bird than a cuddly shoulder-sitter and I wouldn't be surprised if some owners were a little too casual around open windows. My own bird was found on the streets of Chicago during a rainstorm, and despite three months of trying, we couldn't locate the owners. -Andrea Patterson On Thu, Apr 4, 2019 at 7:12 PM Joshua Snodgrass <cedarsh...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hey all, > I was out birding the county line between Schuyler and Seneca Counties > (Seneca Rd, just west of Vesa Rd.) and a bright red medium sized parrot of > some sort flew across the road and perched in the low shrubs lining the > road.
