As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Pet owner issued written warning because of a barking bird

7:08 PM, Apr 2, 2018

CAPE CORAL, Fla - A Lee county woman received a surprise when she opened her mailbox over the weekend. Cheryl Kasper opened up a letter from Lee County Domestic Animal Services for nuisance barking.

"I'm pretty upset because I'm looking at the potential of a $500 fine," Kasper said. "The county wants me to come in with all the paperwork on the dogs."

Kasper plans to comply with the letter, but she said her Congo African Grey is the one behind the barks.

"Zazu picked up on the barking. He was looking for something to pick up next and barking was the next natural thing," Kasper said.

Lee County Domestic Animal Services issued Kasper a letter over the weekend. Karen Fordiani told 4 In Your Corner they send out over a hundred letters a month for nuisance barking.
