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.
You may also want to watch:
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.”
