Staff at Wyevale Garden Centre have thanked members of the public for their support.
The hunt for a popular parrot has continued into a second day.
Staff at Wyevale Garden Centre in Sidmouth launched an online appeal after Theo, their African grey parrot, escaped yesterday morning.
The 11-year-old bird flew out of the store at 8.30am on Tuesday, August 14, while staff had been cleaning his cage.
A member of staff said: “He has been seen a field away from us at the garden centre.
He’s still fairly close by, short tail birds do not fly long distances so he should stay fairly close.
“We found him high up in a tree and we weren’t able to get him down. He was still in the area last night.”
Their online appeal has been shared more than 660 times on Facebook.
The staff member added: “The support has been amazing, it’s absolutely incredible, everyone has been so supportive.”
Anyone who sees Theo is asked to contact the garden centre on 01395 516142 or hand him in to Sidmouth veterinary practice.
