Lost Quaker Parrot Named Tiki

Please call or email asap if you have seen or heard Tiki, the Quaker Parrot who escaped his Logan home on Monday.

From: Loy Moser

Tiki is a Quaker Parrot. We got him from PetSmart about 14 years ago. Once about ten years ago he got out and flew to nearest tree and we had to climb up and get him. He has not been outside since. He flew out of the house Monday morning about 10 a.m. He is tame and we are worried. He was last seen near our home at 690 North 150 W, Logan Utah. He knows his name and may respond. He has a band on his right leg. We have his certificates and can provide the number on his band. My name is Loy Moser, my number is 435-764-2343

Thank you,
Loy
