A MISS­ING par­rot was found two miles from home af­ter it used its beak to “ur­gently” KNOCK ON A DOOR.

The emer­ald green Eclec­tus bird – called Bobby – dis­ap­peared from its cage on Oc­to­ber 9.

His dev­as­tated owner Mar­gita Vi­la­giova launched a mas­sive bird­hunt and put up dozens of ‘miss­ing’ posters.

She had given up hope but five days later Bobby was found – af­ter he tapped on a door.

The plucky crea­ture walked up to a home and used its beak to “ur­gently” knock.

Stunned res­i­dent Sarah Pur­die, 41, opened the door and at first looked straight over him.

But just as she was clos­ing the door she saw 12-inch Bob on the step.

Mar­gita, of Ply­mouth, Devon, said: “I was so wor­ried about him.”
