A crowd gathered on the Upper West Side of New York City to watch firefighters try and capture a runaway pet parrot one last time. “This is more entertainment than we've had during all of quarantine,” an onlooker said. Earlier, the bird, named Dylan, had fled his owner on the way to the vet. In the first rescue attempt, Dylan's elderly owner climbed a ladder to a ledge where the bird was perched. But when the crowd cheered, the noise spooked Dylan and he escaped once again to a nearby tree.
