For the birds...

A lost parrot wouldn't talk to the cops, but when taken to the vet, he gave his name and address and was returned to his owners.

He kept mum with the cops, but began chatting after a few days with the vet.

"I'm Mr. Yosuke Nakamura," the bird told the veterinarian, according to Uemura. The parrot also provided his full home address, down to the street number, and even entertained the hospital staff by singing songs.

The owners say they spent two years teaching the bird his name and address.

So why does this remind me of Mickey Rooney in Boystown?
