A performing parrot from Monroe is safe and sound after pulling off a daring escape from its home and finding itself 40 feet up in a tree. 

Willow the parrot made it out of the front door, to the horror of her owner who told KNOE in Monroe, "I seen him go right out the door. I couldn't sleep, I was sick to my stomach."

The bird was eventually found 40 feet off the ground in a tree after a neighbor heard the bird talking.  Willow's owner, Susan Whiteeagle, called the fire department who were unable to respond. Luckily for her, a local tree cutting service, owned and operated by the Cage family, was willing and able to help bring the bird down.

Willow is now safe and sound and back to his tricks. His owner says she'll never leave the front door open again.
