NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – The macaw that flew away from its owner at the New Hartford Animal Hospital Wednesday morning is still flying around the area.
Amanda Bonanza was taking her macaw, Charlie, to an appointment to get his wings clipped Wednesday when he flew away outside the vet hospital.
Bonanza said his wings had been clipped before, but he was due to have the procedure done again.
After eight hours of searching, calling in a tree service and asking a wildlife expert -- Charlie wouldn't come down on Wednesday.
On Thursday morning, a manager from a nearby gas station told NEWSChannel 2 he could still hear Charlie chirping in the trees.
She said her husband spotted Charlie again Thursday morning in a tree in the same vicinity. However, when they returned later in the day, Charlie was on the move again and couldn’t be found.
If anyone sees Charlie land in their yard or anywhere in that area, call New Hartford animal control at 315-733-6666.
