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.
You know how it goes, first A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, next thing you know, wild parrots move in and there goes the neighborhood
The wild parrots in Brooklyn are Quakers and I think most of them are in Canarsie just a few blocks from where I live.
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.
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.
Sorry you had to find out like this, but I think your parrot is dead
This parrot is no more. He has ceased to be.
This is an Ex parrot! He has gone to meet his maker!
HELLOooooo, POLLY! WAKEY-WAKEY!
… for the fjords.
Remarkable bird, innit? Lovely plumage!
The plumage don't enter into it, it's still stone dead!!
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.
Now I have to go over to YouTube and find the budgie sketch - true comedy classic!
THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!
Pretty bird. Pretty bird...
YOU SOLD MY DEAD BIRD TO A BLIND KID
Petey didn’t even have a head!
I took care of it

I just thought he was really quiet :(
There it is! I was wondering how far I’d have to scroll before finding a dumb and dumber reference. 1/2 page
"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."
He’s just pining for the fjords.
Monty Python Dead Parrot Skit
It is an un-parrot
You win today
Yesterday's still anyone's game
It has ceased to be
Harry….I took care of it!
"Your foster parrots are dead"
Parakeet* nonetheless poor guy is RIP in kill :(
Nah, it’s just restin
Dr Doolittle here,
looks like he had a heart attack.
Not to be a parrot here but I’m pretty sure that’s dead.
That is is just a printer. It can still work fine even if it sits on the floor
I have the same laser printer -- it's fucking awesome. Never going back to inkjet.
Brother gang checking in.
Hell yeah BROTHER
There's an endless road to rediscover
all my homies hate inkjet
The printer rules. It changed my life when I had to go to school from home.
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.
Brother really is the best
I have the exact same one and I agree.
This is the single best printer I ever owned and I’m ashamed I sold it when I went back to an office job.
I have owned the Brother 2270dw for 12 years and it's still going strong. It's such a workhorse.
Make and model, please? I've been looking around for a laser printer and the options/reviews have been overwhelming.
Wait, what??? Something surpassed my Canon Dot Matrix???
Although not recommended because it's going to pick up dust.
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. 😢
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.
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.
Are you in a feud with anyone? Dead parrots in your home are usually a sign of black magic.
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.
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
This summer she sent me a scrawled seven page letter begging me to stop “harming the trees.” I have never met her.
girl…if I were you I would move to a different borough
I pay like 1300 below market value tho 😩😩😩
lmao that’s probably why she’s trying to get you outta there 💀 she wants that deal
omg where, let me take over your lease 😫😂
is she the lorax
Are you harming them, though
Did you stop harming the trees tho?
I spent most of the summer bedridden, 90 miles south of the city, recovering from reconstructive surgery after breaking my ankle in two places in a Brooklyn park. Honestly the trees harmed *me*.
But did you attack the trees first
I second the motion to have you give this story to someone to make into a show!
Drag me to hell part deux
More like a really good dark romcom
I would tune in.
Is that supposed to be Jared Leto??
Is she Haitian? If so, I’d find a new apartment before you get back.
I’m more interested in this story than the parrot.
“Molly, You in danger, Girl” 🔮
this is some mf lore
Live look at OP's neighborhood right now:
Yep. GreenPoint. Polish or absolute bat shit crazy….that my outsider perception at leats
I think you buried the lede in this post!
luckily magic isn't real, at least not this kind.
Clarence Thomas would like a word with you
Tell him to contact my assistant and I'll be in touch.
Black Magic *Definitely* is real
Send proof, cast lightning bolt on me. I'll wait.
I mean, rudeness aside. I see what they're saying. One should generally not believe in something without any proof.
If there was proof Black Magic was real, we'd probably have entire university departments dedicated to that research.
just like black magic, got em.
So you believe in fairy tales huh
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.
What about the Western bunny?
There’s a difference between “believing” in magic and having a stalker whose presence has made you cautious of the Wildly Improbable.
So why bring up all that BS about palo santo and "cleared the air"? You clearly believe in it.
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.
Could have been left by the meowfia or the nyakuza to send a message. Have you been paying your protection tuna?
Plot twist: Your house cleaner added the bird to your apartment.
At this point, I think you're game is over. Move out.
Black Magic? Qrazy.
Just a joke dude.
Whether you believe in it or not, people still practice it...
Not even a joke, the black magic thing kinda makes sense. Since when do birds fly into your apartment and die?
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.
Pretty bird. Yes, can you say pretty bird? Pretty bird, yeah pretty bird...
Don't worry Harry I dealt with Billy he'll be fine
Couple of old baseball cards
Sack of marbles
Harry…I took care of it!
You sold my dead bird to a blind kid?!
HE DIDNT EVEN HAVE A HEAD
Someone snuck into your apartment and dropped off a printer!
That’s what I thought before noticing the bird.
I’m guessing you live in the vicinity of Green Wood?
[There’s a colony of monk parrots there](https://www.timeout.com/newyork/news/green-wood-cemetery-is-home-to-a-flock-of-feral-parrots-070122), one must have run into your window.
The bird pictured is a love bird, monk parrots are all green.
I love All Green
Let’s Stay Together
Dove in Happy nest
Those birds are fucking massive. This is a tiny little bird.
Crazy! Whitestone is the next town over from me (East Flushing) and they've had their own wild monk parrot family as well for a long time. That article says Green Wood has had them since the 80s. I think the Whitestone parrots started in the 90s
I used to see them around Astoria as well
A man walked into a Monty Python sketch....
A pigeon once got into my room while I was away through the AC expandable window insert thingy. It shat everywhere and died.
With this character’s death, the thread of prophecy is severed.
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.
Low on toner. Replace the black ink
He's pining for the fjords..
How can anyone take a photo this bad?
Did the bird have a band on its foot? It’s kinda morbid, but if not try to take a bunch of pictures of it to help give closure to its owner :(
Try r/tech or r/printers
it has definitely ceased to be.
Was a window open? Pet birds do get lost. Maybe it flew in.
The green printer light?
im wondering the same, i mean it looks normal but i could be wrong
We got no food, we got no jobs... our PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
Seeing all the Lovebird mentions and just a heads-up that was the type of birds that got separated at the start of THE Birds.... Watch out, OP!
My parents had a 2nd house in Mexico and found a dead parrot inside like this after not going into the house for 2 years
That, sir is what we call squab. Call the forensic veterinarian!!
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.
Aww she bought you a printer how sweet. I think she might have feelings for you
Congratulation on the new Brother printer. Brother is really good about using ink/toner efficiently and not overcharging for it when you do need it.
I thought it was a random bird 🐦 I'm sorry my condolences to you and your family 👪
Looks like he could just be napping
You can probably sell it to Billy in 4C
Need air purifiers... sorry for its loss. Just thinking mining & canaries.
“HIS HEAD FELL OFF..”
Ah. Beat me to it.
It's not dead, it's just sleeping. Hello Polllllly.
Hardwood floors the whole time
Just tape the head back on and sell it to the blind kid that lives in your building.
I'VE HAD IT WITH DUMP !
We've got no food. We've got no jobs. OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
Aparrotly he is no more!
Looks like some voodoo ish
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.
I think your printer killed your parrot
;; 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.
The printer did it, in the study, and with the electrical cord.
No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!
It's pinin' for the fjords.
The plummage dont enter into it
I suppose it's possible that he/she died?
Yah I found a pigeon skeleton in the wall of my shower. No clue how it got in there but we definitely heard a noise in the wall for a little while before it died in there, mystery solved when we retiled.
It is an ex parrot.
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.
Why the fuck is a dead bird NSFW? If someone can't take that they should move to the mountains.
Listen, my guy. I don’t know what the kids are on about these days.
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?
Yeah man my daily routine is crazy shit site. After that there's little that can rattle my cage. I do generally avoid the gore stuff though.

>Why the fuck is a dead bird NSFW? If someone can't take that they should move to the mountains.
Move to the mountains, where you can see all kinds of dead animals? I feel like that would be a bad move for someone who doesn't like seeing dead birds.
A-parrot-nly she didn’t close the windows.
Gas leak or natural causes
often happens to a .....variety of animals. The bird must have had a loving attachment to you. I am sorry to see this news, I understand your pain. It seems it was a adult bird and did notice you were gone. I am sorry
The printer or the bird?
It's not dead, it's just sleeping
E's pushin up the daisies
"It's okay Harry, I took care of it"
Don't worry Staples has a lot of new printers that you can buy
You should get a cage to keep him and nurse the parrot to health.
What did it taste like
Is cleary latin voodoo from the isle de verde, meant to... nah ya parrot just dead!
do you have a cat?
Petey bird, Petey bird.........
