Richmond Wildlife Center seeks owner of lost Quaker parrot

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond Wildlife Center wants your help to find the rightful owner of a beautiful Quaker parrot found in Richmond.

The wildlife center said that the parrot, which is native to South America, was found by a woman while she was walking her dog in the city. Officials at the center say that it is clear the blue and white parrot is someone's pet, and it has a band around its leg.

If this is your parrot, or you know who he belongs to, call the Richmond Wildlife Center at 804-378-2000.

The Richmond Wildlife Center also wants to remind pet owners to have their animals micro-chipped, which can help them be reunited with their owners faster when they are lost.
