Parrot Fashion

Look Out For A Bird With A Passport

A British tourist has had his passport stolen in New Zealand’s Fiordland region - by a large wild parrot with a reputation for mischief. The passport has not been recovered and, given the 4,600 square mile size of Fiordland's alpine national park, the officer said it was unlikely.

FOOTNOTE: Starred and feathered.

What an interesting story. I'm glad it wasn't me. I wonder what that bird is doing with that passport.

Hmmm...wonder if that's what happened to my nephew's wallet? He was over there recently and lost his within the first week.

Peace!

I expect he will feel silly reapplying and giving the reason as *parrot stole passport!*

I thought that was a magpie's (not a parrot's) job, David! LOL!

Talk about identity theft! You don't suppose that parrot is working for terrorists and filching assorted passports to use in making forged documentation do you?
