(Newser) – A vet in Japan was stumped on how to reunite a lost parrot with its owners—until the brainy bird told him his address and his owner's name. The well-trained African gray has been safely reunited with his human family, the BBC reports. The bird kept mum in police custody but got chatty when it was sent to an animal clinic, calling out greetings and even belting out a few hit tunes.
