Lost parakeet tells police his home address
Piko-Chan the pet parakeet is giving ‘tweeting’ a whole new meaning. According to USA Today, the baby-blue budgie escaped from its home in Yokohama, Japan on Sunday. He flew for some time until finally flying into a hotel window, and “perching on the shoulder of a guest.” The bird was then handed over to police. Piko-Chan wasn’t affected by their interrogation skills, and remained silent.
However after two days, little Piko-Chan most have gotten home sick. He not only began talking, but he actually recited his home address including the city, district, block and street number of his owner’s residence.
A spokesman for the north Sagamihara police station where the bird was taken, told AFP the bird also shared his name.
Piko-Chan’s owner, a 64-year-old woman, had lost one pet parakeet before, according to AFP. Determined to not lose another pet, she taught her bird to recite its home address.
