Lost: Silver Lake grey parrot flies coop again

Submitted by Alexis Readinger

My Lola bird flew off on Christmas Eve.  She is a grey parrot with a red tail and says “yo.”  She likes oranges.  She was last seen on Fanning and Effie where two gardeners in a cream pickup were trying to catch her.  She could possibly be with them or still roaming Silverlake.  We will offer a HUGE reward for her return, no questions asked.

Lola escaped two years ago and with the help of Silverlake residents and bird lovers across LA, a psychic, a pet detective with trained bloodhounds, an 8 foot billboard, the distribution of 2000 telephone calls and endless flyers, she was returned to me via craigslist.  We were so grateful and are sick that she escaped again.  All I can do is humbly ask for help again.

  3. Hey Alexis.
    Please keep us posted. I’ve told a bunch of my neighbors to keep an eye out and will continue spreading the word.

    Are Lola’s wings clipped or can she fly easily? Just wondering how far you are thinking she could go…

  4. Maybe it was meant for you not to have this bird.
