A happy-ending story to conclude the night:
After a text this afternoon, we posted a “lost macaw spotted” report on the WSB Lost/Found Pets page. Not much later, a rescue ensued: Merry Myers tells the tale, and shares the photos:
Mya the Macaw flew out of her house up the hill from 47th and Alaska Sts and landed on the highest branches of a tree just off the 47th Ave SW alley – between Alaska and Oregon. The owners tried to call the bird down and soon a crowd from the neighborhood gathered, including a nearby resident who brought her parrot with her to see if the Macaw might be curious enough to come down and investigate:
Tall ladders were offered by the neighbors and the owner climbed way up in the tree with treats, to try and lure her down.
Finally she began to make her way down to him and he eventually managed to grab her and make his way precariously down the tree while the neighbors cheered.
We live in a great neighborhood.
