Liuzzi-Verrastro became aware of the parrot through 911 Parrot Alert (www.911parrotalert.com), an international database for lost, stolen, found and sightings of parrots. She took it in and has been fostering it this past month while she tries to locate the original owner.
“I have posted everywhere on Facebook and called vets and bird shops in area as well as handed out fliers in neighborhood,” Liuzzi-Verrastro said. She describes the bird as tame and hopes a Manhasset Press reader can help track down his origins.
