Parrot Briefly Escapes at Kittitas County Fair and Rodeo

Posted: Updated:
ELLENSBURG, WA - A parrot that flew the coop from a show Friday at the Kittitas County Fair in Ellensburg wasn't gone for long. 

Owner Chris Biro says he recovered the young scarlet macaw named Drago on Friday night in a tree near where he was searching. 

Directors at the fair say someone spotted the bird and told them, so they called Biro.

Drago is part of the "Pirate's Parrot" show where fairgoers have their pictures taken and the trained birds swoop down and grab money held aloft.
