Ottawa Parrot Lost On Elgin Street

The numbers have been changed so if you do see this parrot you should email me and I’ll contact the proper authorities. It has been almost a year since I took this shot so the bird could be back in Central or South America by now. Or it could have grown a beard. I think girl parrots can do that.

Technical Stuff: The parrot hooked me, but it was the cheesy that made me stop. I think the first thing you have to do to get a shot like this is to find someone with a parrot and break their window. After that it’s just a matter of time.

Actually… if you look at the parrot it almost looks like she was caught on a surveillance camera as she was stealing the cheesy from the cage… this is on Elgin Street, somewhere near the Elgin Street Diner. If you’re ever in the area maybe keep your eyes open for bearded female parrots stealing snacks.

    As far as I understand bearded female parrots are known for their longevity and survival instinct. After they grab your cheesy they’re also supposed to be pretty good at hailing cabs and getting the fuck out of the neighbourhood before the cops show up. I’m sure she’s fine… thanks for clicking the random post thingee Clare, I like this one as well.
