Once a young pet parrot escapes from the owner, it will fly far away and enjoy the freedom from being caged all day long. This true story of the escapee Goffin's Cockatoo returning to the owner indirectly is unbelievable. I was present as her vet on that day in July 2018 to visit Abigail who told me that she had to rush out to search for her escapee bird. We found the parrot on a tree. Abigail failed to get her bird back to her after more than 30 minutes of calling. In her distress, I thought of divine help. The bird flew back to her but landed on my right shoulder. She was overjoyed and secured Mango inside a large plastic crate.
I believe there was divine intervention in getting the Goffin’s Cockatoo home in 2018 as it had some similarities to that of the escapee blue fronted Amazon belonging to Andrew.
In 2015, Andrew’s blue-fronted Amazon escaped from his 5th floor Housing Board flat to a tree opposite. The parrot perched on the tree overnight. He prayed to his 3 Buddhas for help the next morning. Soon, a big black bee buzzed above his bird’s forehead. The bird flew down to the ground. He rushed downstairs and got his bird home.
If prayers had worked for Andrew, would prayers work for Abigail? Abigail cried louder for her bird to return to her, In her distressful pleas, I recalled this salesman’s prayers.
I did not have Andrew’s faith, so I asked for some divine help.
Suddenly, the Goffin’s Cockatoo aborted her flight across the road. She turned around and flew towards me! Not to Abigail who fed and cared for her.
I quickly turned around with my back facing the bird. She landed on my right shoulder. I was wearing a dark green polo shirt. Could she have seen it as a tree to perch? A transformation visible only to the Goffin’s Cockatoo?
Abigail was very happy as she secured her bird inside the plastic container. I had never told her about my “divine intervention” as it was unbelievable. The bird was found. That was what mattered.

The escapee Goffin’s Cockatoo was perched on the left tree. This image was taken in 15 Jan 2022. I believe there was divine intervention because I thought of the salesman who told me how he got his escapee Amazon Front parrot home. The parrot perched on the tree opposite his HDB flat overnight. He prayed to his 3 Buddhas for help. Soon, a big black bee buzzed on the bird’s forehead. The bird descended onto the ground. He rushed downstairs and got his bird home.
As Abigail cried louder for her bird to return to her, I thought of the salesman’s praying to the Buddhas for help after his morning bath. Would the divine help Abigail if I asked for help? The Goffin’s Cockatoo turned around and flew towards me! Not to Abigail. I quickly turned around with my back facing the bird. She landed on my right shoulder. Abigail had her back. I did not tell her about divine intervention even now 4 years later. The bird is still with her.

A BLUE-FRONTED AMAZON ESCAPED FROM THE HDB FLAT
Did prayers get the Blue-fronted Amazon home?
"I don't know whether you will consider me loony," the camera salesman said to me. "After I prayed to Buddha, a big black bee appeared and landed on the crown of my blue-fronted Amazon perched in a tree opposite my 5th floor apartment. The buzzing bee gave my bird such a fright that he flapped his wings and landed onto the ground!"
I was at the camera shop to buy batteries for my Canon camera before going on a trip to Europe this Thursday.
