Parrot Care Goes Above and Beyond with Zuzu’s 24 Hour Big Adventure


Minneapolis woman’s blue parrot uses instinct and skill to find the way home.

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA- Priscilla Cushman lost Zuzu, her Quaker blue parrot, after he opened his own cage and flew 30 miles across the Twin Cities.

Elizabeth Richards discovered the bird 24 hours later when she pulled in the driveway and heard an unusual sound. “This is not a pigeon”, was her first thought, "I couldn’t believe my eyes- I could tell it was exotic- when I said ’pretty bird’, it would respond, not with words, but with lingo.”

The bird landed on Richards’ shoulder and “basically it wouldn’t get off,” Richards said. She posted a picture on Facebook and did a Google search for lost parrots and found a post for lost parrots.

“I said Zuzu right away, and it turned it’s head,” Richards said. She then called the owner to return the bird. Parrots are amazing creatures and you can learn more about their incredible abilities at:

“Zuzu’s ability to open his own cage door and communicate with humans is not that unusual,” explains Parrot Training Center founder, Carl Kastor. “These birds have abilities far beyond what most people understand, and they can live up to 60 years.”

The Parrot Training Center website,, is dedicated to educating people about the responsibility they have when deciding to purchase a pet parrot. This includes parrot diet, parrot breeders, and parrot tricks. This can be a lifelong commitment and with that comes major responsibility.
