Skateboarding Parrot Stolen

An unwelcomed intruder has bird-napped a beloved, skateboarding parrot from his cage in front of his owner's home in Baldwin Park, CA Wednesday morning.

A neighbor's security camera next to Fred Mireles' home recorded the crime in progress.
Surveillance video captured loud shrieks from Gordo the Parrot as the 30-year-old bird was taken from his cage just after 10 a.m.

Gordo is a well-known icon in the Baldwin Park neighborhood.

Gordo's owner Fred Mireles often takes the bird on walks with his skateboard.
"He's not your regular bird. He's like a little kid," Mireles said.

Mireles just wants Gordo back and hopes a tipster will come forward with information about the incident.

If you have any information about incident, contact the Baldwin Park Police Department at (626) 960-1955.
