This priest searching for his African Grey parrot
Fr Rex has been searching for his pet ‘Appu’, an African Grey parrot that went missing from Saturday. Appu is not an ordinary parrot. It can sing songs in Tamil and Malayalam and mimic voices of other birds and animals.
Fr Rex Joseph Arakkaparambil is the associate director of Kalmassery Little Flower Engineering Institute and head of sound engineering department here.
“Appu suddenly flew away while practicing a song. Earlier, I thought he would be somewhere around the building. But he did not return even at night. I phoned many friends and acquaintances and enquired whether they saw Appu anywhere. But they replied they did not see him,” Fr Rex described the incident.
Three years ago, Fr Rex received Appu as a gift from a friend who knew his love for birds.
Fr Rex taught Appu to sing songs and mimic sounds of other creatures.
When Appu was six months old, it flew away but within a week, Fr Rex found it with the help of a friend. Fr Rex used to take Appu everywhere with him.
