Even exotic African parrots like to cruise, apparently.
A British new outlet today has the heartwarming story of a Liverpool cab driver who has been reunited with a prized pet parrot thanks to the quick action of a crew member on a German cruise ship.
The Liverpool Echo says the African Grey parrot, named Geordie, was discovered Thursday perched on a deck of the 536-passenger Albatros while the ship was docked in Liverpool. The crew member caught the bird and brought it to port authorities, who in turn contacted a local animal welfare organization. The organization was able to reunite the bird with its owners.
