(Newser) – Police near Tokyo were stumped about how to go about finding the home of a lost parakeet—until the bird opened his mouth and told them his address, reports AFP. Turns out the owner had lost a previous parakeet because it flew away, so she made a point to teach the new one their numbered street address. Piko-chan is now home safe and sound.
