They say the early bird gets the worm, but at 7th and Montana, all you get is more birds.  I arrived at Our Favorite Starbucks yesterday just as the sun was rising, and was greeted by an Anonymous Loon with a Parrot.  "Is this your bird?," he asked, pointing at the parrot, which was perched on his shoulder.  He apparently found it wandering aimlessly up and down 7th Street.  "No," I replied, thinking quickly, "It's not mine, but why don't you let me take a picture and we can use it to help find the owner."  "Oh, thank you, that's very nice!," he said.  "Think nothing of it," I replied, "I'm just performing a community service.  Now watch the Birdie!"  I don't know if he ever found the bird's rightful owner, but something tells me that the mysterious, new neighbors at 7th and Marguerita -- the ones who installed a noisy aviary next to their house -- have an escapee on their hands.  And maybe the parrot is theirs, too ...!

You are too funny, lol. I hope he did find its owner. It was nice of him too, to try and find the owners.
