Update: Missing parrot found and returned to Honolulu Zoo

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- One of the three exotic birds missing from the Honolulu Zoo is back where it belongs.

Zoo officials say a couple hiking the Diamond Head trail this morning found the red soloman island eclectus parrot.  According to officials, the couple threw a jacket over the bird and brought it back to the zoo.

The parrot is recovering at the veterinary facility and will stay there for at least the next month before being returned to its exhibit. 

However, the two other birds are still on the loose.  A buff-headed ground dove and a tawny frogmouth also escaped when vandals cut holes in 24 wire cages Monday night.

Police are still looking for the culprits.

Call the zoo at 971-7174 if you see one of the missing birds or if you have information about the vandalism. You can also contact CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.
