Are you missing this bird?

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texan arrives home on a lunch break to find a friendly surprise in his front yard.

Randy Treadwell of Tyler was welcomed home by the strange bird you see in the picture to the right. Treadwell says he took pictures of the bird and then went back to work, thinking the bird would go away. But, a few hours later he left work for the day and found that the creature was still there, this time, on his roof! Treadwell says he and his dad were able to corral the bird into his garage. He says judging by the bird's countence and the fact that it's wings are clipped someone is missing the fine fowl. He says he took the pictures to PetsMart to see if anyone could identify the bird, but its identity and potential owner remain a mystery.

Right now, the bird's new home is in Treadwell's garage where its relaxing, and enjoying fine cuisine (water and bird seed). Treadwell says though he is an animal lover, his girlfriend is not. So, if the feathered friend is yours or you know who it belongs to, let us know. Treadwell lives off Old Bullard near Rice Elementary.
