A parrot is back on its perch at the Philadelphia Zoo after being AWOL for several days. The 5-month-old Sun Conure flew away earlier this week.

A search turned up empty-handed.

Today, zoo officials said that a Chester County family visiting Fairmount Park on Wednesday found the bird which came down to them from a tree.

They saw TV reports about the bird, and called zoo officials who retrieved the Sun Conure from the family this morning.
