Bird on a Hot Tin Roof

Gulfport, Florida -- Sunday night, Birdie, a young  scarlet macaw, escaped from his Wood Ibis-area home and took flight, landing on one of Gulfport’s highest rooftops at the west end of 27th Street South.

Birdie’s owner, Kent Johansen, called 911.

“911 called us and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got a bird on a roof’,” Gulfport Fire Chief Jim Marenkovic said. Gulfport’s Engine 17 went to the home and realized they would need a ladder truck to reach the bird, so firefighters called for assistance. The St. Petersburg Fire Rescue sent such a truck.
