Police in Portland are asking the public's help to locate a large parakeet reported stolen from his cage outside his owners' home.
The unidentified owners of "Josey" say their 14-inch Derbyan parakeet vanished around mid-day Tuesday. They told police the 5-year-old male bird was last seen in his cage between the house and garage.
The bird is described as having a gray body and head, with black over his eyes and below his beak, a green back and wings and a bright orange beak.
Josey reportedly can say a few words, although police did not say what they were.
