Police in Aa en Hunze, a small town in Drenthe, said they were looking for the owner of a green Amazon parrot found by a local resident. The bird was trained to speak words in the Dutch language, and was also able to mimic someone whistling the children's tune, "Papegaaitje leef je nog?"
It was found on Tuesday in the Zwanenmeerbos near Gieten, police said. The resident handed the bird over to the police, who have since been searching for its owner.
Police first asked its Twitter followers about the bird the day it was found, and again on Wednesday.
