Fairfield — Police say a Connecticut woman became concerned when she heard someone calling "Daddy" repeatedly near a school. But when she began looking for a child, she instead found a large green parrot up in a tree. 

Fairfield police Lt. James Perez says the fire department used a long pole to remove the bird from the tree at Holland Hill School on Thursday. The parrot then flew onto a bamboo stand. Firefighters chased it out and an animal control officer caught it in a net and brought it to a shelter. 

Perez says the bird was talking nonstop saying, "Daddy," ''hello," ''what!" and other words. 

The bird was found about 1 mile from its home. It was later reunited with its owner, who had reported it missing.
