Coeur d'Alene Woman Searches For Missing Parrot

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A $1,000 pet parrot that escaped through an open door has a neighborhood in the northern Idaho city of Coeur d'Alene on the lookout and keeping up a steady stream of sightings to the anxious owner.

One neighbor even reported finding a feather of the African gray parrot with a red tail named Tuii (Two-ee) in her yard, and another neighbor is trying to capture Tuii using a dog crate baited with food. Owner Crystal Partenselder says she's spotted Tuii herself since he escaped Aug. 6 and he apparently thinks he's a wild bird now but she has news for him. She says when the weather turns cold and backyard bird feeders run out he'll be looking for human help.

She tells the Coeur d'Alene Press that her son bought her the bird as a gift two years ago when Tuii was 10 weeks old.
