What Happened When a Customer Got Her Bird Stuck in Her Hair

This helpful store owner came to her rescue with just the right tool.




bird on lady's head

A customer calls me and says her African Grey is caught in her hair and she can’t get him out. A few minutes later, the customer pulls up in front of the store with the bird on top of her head. Sure enough, he was wrapped up tight. The customer says, “Just cut him out, don’t worry about my hair, just cut him out.” I get the scissors, chop a portion of her hair, and out the door she goes with the bird and a new hairdo. — Paul Lewis, Birds Unlimited, Webster, NY
