“A parakeet, which is clearly someone’s pet, made it’s way to our playground”

“Dear PoPville,

A parakeet, which is clearly someone’s pet, made it’s way to our playground. We were able to capture it and have it at our school. We’d like to get the word out to folks in the neighborhood.

Christian Family Montessori School
201 Allison St., NW

They can call the school 202-722-1520 and ask for Wendy. We have contacted the humane society and they will pick up at some point today but it didn’t sound like it would be immediately.”

  • Suse

    Would the band on her leg reveal any information?

    • Wendy

      We have a number off the band but do not know of any means to track it via that. But it can be used to identify the owner.

      • Karin

        I get that you’re at work, and I’m sure the Humane Society probably has information with how to track, but I ran across a few “look up tracking” resources at the bottom of this page, “Databases and Registries.” https://www.beautyofbirds.com/legbands.html
        No promises for how useful it is thoug but thought I’d share!

    They can travel quite a distance (I found one once that had come from 6 or 7 miles away, over the course of three days) so if there’s a Pasha of Palisades or Khan of Kensington or something, you should post there, too! I reunited the one I found with his people via Craigslist.
    That’s a boy, btw. Bright blue nostrils.
    I hope the humane society can get some info from his leg band!

      I love the name ideas “Pasha of Palisades” and “Khan of Kensington”!

  • Caroline

    Wow, it must be the day for it! I heard this story on the radio this morning:
    Good job catching the little guy! I hope he finds his way home.

  • Oh! There are signs all over Petworth for a missing parakeet named Rayo (pronounced Raw-o and he apparently knows his name). I can’t find anything online, but I definitely saw a sign on the parking meter outside of Qualia.

    • C_petworth

      2nd that ! i was just going to comment about Rayo when i saw your. I assume WHS was alerted when Rayo went missing and will make the connection but ill try and look for those signs again tonight and alert the owner to this post.

    • Wendy

      Thanks. I checked with Qualia and they no longer have the fliers. If anyone knows where else there is one or sees one and can grab the contact information for me, I’d appreciate it.

      • From Yes! Market in Petworth. Owner is supposedly named Sue, and works at the Hyattsville Yes! Market. Contacted them, she’s not reachable today, and they don’t know how to reach her otherwise. The number they gave me for Hyattsville Yes! is 301-779-1205. Fingers crossed.

      It looks like Rayo is actually a cockatiel:
      I thought I’d maybe seen a “From the Forum” posting on Rayo, but if there was one, I can’t find it now.

  • Petworth neighbor

    the guy running the Upshur Laundromat on Upshur between 2nd and 3rd has a lot of birds and at one time had some parakeets. could be one of his.

  • Wendy

    Unfortunately it’s not the bird in the Qualia flier. That’s a cockatiel. Appreciate any other leads.

  • AnonJohn

    I saw this little guy on 8th street this morning, near Randolph. Approached him, but he ably flew away. Hope he gets home!

  • mdtodc

    There were flyers posted around the dog park on 17th and S st NW a few months back. I can’t imagine that many parakeets go missing, but then again who knows?

  • Mike

    This morning I saw a flyer with a picture of two parakeets, a green one and a white one. I forwarded this post to the number listed. Hopefully it’s the right bird! They said the bird was missing around the 18th. If anyone sees a white parakeet, please contact 202-446-7370.

  • Elmer Amaya
