11/18/07 Joey is a 2.5 year-old, male, Green Wing Macaw. He weighs 1373g. He has an extensive vocabulary. He has unusual blue wing feathers. They appear normal until you look at the part under the next feather, that section is colored bright pink. He was lost on 11/18/2007, at 4:00 PM in Lancaster at 11th street East and Avenue K-8. He was last seen flying low and to the south. He is not supposed to be able to fly, so there is a good chance he will be on the ground (I pray not) or in lower branches or bushes. I am especially worried because our nighttime low is in the low 40's and is only going to get colder. So if you find him, please call my cell, 661-305-8564, or house, 661-723-1419, and I will arrive immediately to get him. $100 for anyone who tells me where he is and their tip pans out. Dodi

GILDA HAS BEEN STOLEN
Gilda is a friendly, beautiful Red Fronted Macaw. Many of you who have been to Parrots Naturally know her.Gilda was brazenly grabbed from a perch in the front of our store as customers watched on August 4 at about 1:15 pm.
The thieves are two large male Hispanics who ran out and jumped into a silver-grey VW sedan, (may be a Jetta). The car looked brand new and had paper dealer plates from Finley, Findley or Findlay motors or automotive.
Red Fronteds are a dark, olive green small macaw with a brilliant red front (forehead) and top of the head. She has a distinctive orange patch on her face and orange on her shoulders and under-wings. They are not considered mini-macaws, but are the smallest of the large macaws weighing around 550 gms. Gilda knows her name and will reply Hi Gilda when you call her. She also waves when you wave to her.
We are offering a large reward for her return. If someone
approaches you offering to sell a red fronted or any other kind
of macaw, please, please say that you are interested and will
pay a fair price. Try anything to stall and then, call all of
the numbers below. If you are a bird or pet store, please, say
that you have a customer that is interested. We will guarantee
$1,500 if you can negotiate.
Call me anytime (night or day) if you have a lead. Judy Lantz Shop: 818 708 7277 (days); Home: 818 883 1422 Cell: 818 404 4691 Email: email@example.com

Subject: Stolen macaw and African grey
(Fresno area) Stolen - African grey and macaw - Fresno area On
Saturday May 26, 2007 at 8:00am, (in Fresno area) thieves used
bold cutters to remove the locks, then stole my sister's Congo
African Grey and Blue and Gold Macaw parrots from her backyard.
This has been a devastating event for my sister Sandi, since she
is single and loves them like children. Both birds are attached
to each other as their cages have been next to each other for
the last 15 years. Sandi is very concerned about their stress
levels because they are extremely attached to her and their environment.
Because we believe that the thieves may sell them to unsuspecting
buyers who won't be able to handle them they may be sold again
or be abandoned or become rescue birds. We are asking you to please
save this letter so if in the future month when birds that may
fit their description come across your path you would please contact
Roady - An African Grey has lived with Sandi for over 20 years and has never been sexed. She was full feathered and very healthy. Some of her favorite words "Sandi, or Sandra" She whistles the Andy Griffin Show theme song and other names she calls are "Johnny, Major and Milo " She likes to imitate a rooster, peacock, hammer, telephone, mumble on phone, kitten, dog barking, moos like a cow. Whispers "Shhhh, be quiet! Makes kissing noises, Donald Duck voice and giggles with Major.
Major - A Blue and Gold Macaw is 15 years old and has been raised by Sandi since she was 6 weeks old and was surgery sexed. Major was full feathered and healthy but can only be handled by Sandi. She does have a titanium band on her right foot, not sure if the number is still visible. She did lose a large number of feathers in the struggle when she was stolen. Her favorite phrases, "Milo,get the ball! and screams Milo's name. She screams the word "Mom" HI! HI! HI! "Grace, Out! Out! Out!" "Ouch, stop that!" And screams like a little girl(from theneighborhood). "Good boy, Major!"
Our main concern is the bird's safety and getting them home as soon as possible with limit amount of stress. No questions asked, just want their safe return.
Sandi Lea, Laton, CA 93242 (559) 287-3600, (559) 923-4305; Shella Caroni, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420 (805) 473-0304 firstname.lastname@example.org
