Missing parrot found at Kittitas County Fair

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) - A parrot that flew the coop from a show Friday at the Kittitas County Fair in Ellensburg wasn't gone for long.

Owner Chris Brio says he recovered the young scarlet macaw named Drago on Friday evening in a tree in the area where he had been searching.

The Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/1A1WILW ) someone spotted the bird and told fair officials who called Brio.

Drago is part of the "Pirate's Parrot" show where fairgoers have their pictures taken and the trained birds swoop down and grab money held aloft.
