Pete the Parrot's Treetop Rescue

Pete is a Green Cheeked Conure who likes to ride around town with his humans.  Unfortunately when they stopped to get gas they didn't realize a window was open at the back of the car and Pete got out.  When they found me and called for help Pete had been in the tree for about 5 hours and they were very worried they might never see poor Pete again.

When I arrived and began putting my rope in a nearby tree it scared Pete and he flew to another tree.  It turns out Pete's wings are not clipped.  I figured this could be a futile game of chase if we didn't have a good plan.

I worked as cautiously as I could to rig the second tree for the climb and Pete's humans spoke to him constantly.  Pete's delicious millet ended up being the magic ingredient for a successful rescue.
