On Monday, Pastor Irish Jones was walking at Roper Park with a friend. As her walk came to an end, she and her friend found something rather unusual in the grass near her car. 

Jones had found a small blue and white parakeet sitting in the grass. She scooped the bird up and took it to the vet.

The local vet said the bird was healthy but could not determine the gender or age. The vet believes that the bird was someone’s pet that escaped and became exhausted in the hot Georgia weather. 

Jones plans to keep the bird safe and sound until the owner contacts her. The bird is in good hands with Jones. Contact her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are the bird’s owner.
