Parrot In Britain Flew The Coop, Then Hailed Taxi Home


Good morning, I'm David Greene. It was three weeks since Peter Jackson lost his parrot. The British man was despondent. The parrot named Evie flew away after a noise in the garden frightened her. She evidently wanted to come home, so she hailed a taxi. The driver says the bird landed outside his cab and said, hello.

He picked her up, went on Facebook to look for someone missing a parrot and Evie made it home. Mr. Jackson got the parrot after his wife passed away. He said Evie is his soul mate, and he is grateful that she's back. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
