Lost Parrot - 100 Dollar Reward
Kaya escaped from her home at 1833 Touhy on Friday Sept 20th. She is a Timneh African Grey. She is pigeon sized, grey with a maroon tail. She is pretty quiet bird and will be especially so as she is probably terrified. But should respond to a whistle, especially Happy Birthday. She may repeat the first 3 notes or just whistle a single note. Knows her name is Kaya but reacts more to "Pooky" whistles, mews liks a kitten, may say "Hey!" to a barking dog, and do a simple 4 note whistle. Loves peanuts, and knows the word peanuts, so may be coaxed with peanuts. Also loves apples, understands "tastes good, you want some?"
