A parrot that can imitate a wolf whistle and makes beeping noises like Star Wars droid R2-D2 is missing in Maine, its owner said.
The 10-year-old Timneh African Grey parrot named Paco flew off into the woods in East Madison, Maine after getting spooked by something while perched on his owner’s shoulder last week, the Morning Sentinel reports.
The parrot’s owner, Oscar Cornejo, is offering a reward for anyone who finds his 10-inch-tall charcoal gray bird, which has a burgundy tail and some human personality traits and talents. “He’s got some sass and attitude, but he’s got a sense of humor,” Cornejo, 34, told the Sentinel.
Cornejo raised Paco since the bird was about a month old. The parrot can speak some words in English and Spanish, but most of the noises he makes sound like beeps and whistles. “If you hear a microwave beep or a smoke alarm beep in the woods, that’s him,” Cornejo said. “He sounds like R2-D2 sometimes.”
