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.
