Mango the lost Fairfield parrot has been reunited with his owner


FAIRFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Mango the Macaw parrot, spotted around town in Fairfield earlier this week, has been reunited with his owner.

Fairfield Animal Control said in a post Tuesday that the Macaw was seen in a tree on the walking path between Veres Street and the Senior center off of Mona Terrace.

Officials report that the brightly-colored bird was too high up for the Fire Department to attempt a capture. Attempts to lure the bird down were unsuccessful, but that they were able to establish that the bird can talk and say ‘hello.’

One Fairfield resident reported that they saw the bird on their roof Wednesday, and that he was saying ‘hello’ to everyone who walked by.

Animal Control was still looking for the owner of the blue and gold parrot as of Wednesday.
