Do you own that bird? If not, sadly, birds escape occasionally in NYC. I actually acquired a cockatiel a few years ago (now passed) that seems to have escaped an apartment. We never found the owner. Poor thing must have gotten in and been able to get out. There are also wild parrots in Brooklyn.


sockalicious

You know how it goes, first A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, next thing you know, wild parrots move in and there goes the neighborhood


bumper_Guy

The wild parrots in Brooklyn are Quakers and I think most of them are in Canarsie just a few blocks from where I live.


socialcommentary2000

They live in the cemeteries in the area. They build big apartment complex like nests that help keep them all warm during the winter. There's something beautifully fitting about this.


s317sv17vnv

I believe they are a nuisance to Con Ed because they tend to build the nests on transformers because of the heat they give off to help them stay warm especially in the winter. We have a few of them up in Whitestone too. This parrot is a lovebird though, so sadly it's probably someone's pet that escaped.

No-BrowEntertainment

Look, I took the liberty of examining that parrot, and I discovered that the only reason it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been *nailed* there.

"Sorry you had to find out like this, but I think your parrot is dead," declared the vet. "No no, it can't be!" cbrownst exclaimed. "I want a second opinion." "Ok, give me a minute," answered the vet. The vet left the room, and after a few minutes the vet walks back in with a dog. The dog walks around the parrot, sniffs at it a bit, nods at the vet, and then walks out. "Yup, your parrot is dead." said the vet. "No no no, I won't accept it. I want one more look!" cbrownst exclaimed again. So the vet left again and this time came back with a cat. The cat walked around the parrot, looked it up and down, nodded at the vet, and walked out. "Sorry ma'am, your parrot \*is\* dead." said the vet once more. Finally coming to terms with her grief, cbrownst conceded, "ok, its dead. \*sigh\*." "Sorry for your loss," said the vet, "that'll be $1000." "$1000!?!?" exclaimed cbrownst, "to tell me my parrot is dead?!" The vet replied: "Well it would have been $100 for the visit, but we had to add in the lab test and cat scan."

I have the Dell badged version of this. It’s amazing. I don’t print for months and it’s fine. I think it took 2 years before I needed more toner. Honestly, I wanted to make a joke about the printer instead of the dead bird, but the printer is so good it just can’t be joked about.

Looks like a love bird. Definitely an escaped pet and not a wild parrot. Probably came in through the window or maybe even the door if it belonged to a neighbor? Sad. 😢


cbrownst

Sorry, I didn’t know how to tag this post and “found” seemed to cover it. *Edited to clarify*: I have never owned a parrot.


shortpaleand

I've never come home to a dead parrot, but when I lived in the heights I came home to a live one in the apartment. It was screeching and hiding behind a bike wheel because my cat was sitting and staring at it. Managed to trap it under a laundry basket and put signs up around the building - turns out it belonged to a neighbor and had flown out of their open window and into ours.


No_Tax5256

Are you in a feud with anyone? Dead parrots in your home are usually a sign of black magic.


cbrownst

Interestingly, this was my first thought as there’s a woman in my neighborhood who has long hated me and sent me many ominous communications over the years. She had an affair with my ex-spouse a decade ago and remained fixated on me long after the affair ended. The woman looking after my home searched for any signs or omens and smudged the place with palo santo…. I trust her to have cleared the air but I don’t like the appearance of this bird one bit.


[deleted]

I don’t have any good answers but just wanted to suggest selling this story to Netflix to be turned into a three, maybe four part documentary

I hate to be the one to break this to you, especially at your age, but the Eastern bunny isn't real, nor is Santa. There's no excuse for someone with a modern education to believe in things like magic.


Tobar_the_Gypsy

What about the Western bunny?


cbrownst

There’s a difference between “believing” in magic and having a stalker whose presence has made you cautious of the Wildly Improbable.


tryfap

So why bring up all that BS about palo santo and "cleared the air"? You clearly believe in it.


cbrownst

Talk to me when you have someone unexpectedly find a dead bird in your home. Preparing for the improbable is hardly an inconvenience.

Not even gonna deny it I see. Talk to me when you grow up and stop believing in fairy tales.

Agamemnon4646

If a window was open, yeah, that would explain it for sure. Someone asked if a window was open and OP didn’t answer. Which makes me think, yeah a window was probably open and that’s how it happened and they kinda know it. However- if no window was open… I can’t imagine a bird just waltzing in with the house sitter not noticing it.

The green parrots come by my block in Astoria every spring and chill in the trees by my windows for a few days before moving on. One poor guy was probably a bit too curious for his own good and somehow broke into your place and couldn’t get out.

Sufficient-Soft-5118

That, sir is what we call squab. Call the forensic veterinarian!!


kuedhel

AFAIK, if you see a dead bird on a street, you should not touch it and should call 311. It is because bird could have died from avian flu and because a lot of people died 100 years ago when the avian flu jumped from birds to people. I cannot tell if this is domesticated or wild parrot, but as precaution, I would call 311 and explain.


Actual-Dance297

pursuitofhappy

Very interesting circumstance- that’s a lovebird, someone’s pet escaped and somehow wound up and died in your home. If it was a monk parakeet I would assume it was a wild one as there are surprsingly a lot in Brooklyn and they have huge nests all over the place.


JP0107-

I think your printer killed your parrot


lok_olga

;; sadly this happens. In the area I live in (gravesend) during the spring and summer months there is a giant group of parrots or parakeets or whatever they’re called and they build nests and live in the trees.I heard that during the 90s over here a van crashed and tons of those birds went into the wild. And tons survived too cuz I see them every year. But aside from that it Seems like that bird must have been living outside. There must have been an open window somewhere and it got in maybe hit itself trying to get out knocked itself out and died from shock? Maybe it was somebody’s pet and flew away? Pet birds cannot fly that far because they usually don’t and he might have died from fatigue or like dehydration or something. There’s really no way to tell and it’s just sad. Poor little guy. Bury him. Give him back to Mother Earth.

spacedad

It is an ex parrot.


ramstein85

My only thought on this is that it snuck in through an open window and couldn't get out. I know someone who had something similar happen to them. They own a house and the apartment was empty. One day they went upstairs to check on it, only to find 3 dead birds. They discovered that the top window would slide open on its own after a while, which allowed the birds to build a nest on it. They must have fallen in and couldn't get out. It happens.


Jclarkson50

Why the fuck is a dead bird NSFW? If someone can't take that they should move to the mountains.

As a parrot owner, this is a very grim scene for me and I do appreciate the NSFW. I clicked and am seeing it anyway but still appreciate it

To my mind, you can view the comments without the photo and prepare yourself to click if you’d like to. Why not err on the size of caution?
