BIRDS of a feather were brought back to­gether! After a be­daz­zled pet pi­geon flew the coop, it was re­united with its adop­tive mother — who seems to have lost her mar­bles!

Olive — whose owner, Mar­lette Fer­nando, dresses her in a rhine­ston­es­tud­ded vest — flew away from her Phoenix home on Nov. 7.

Though Mar­lette was dev­as­tated her jew­elry-fes­tooned fly­girl­broke free, Olive was seen mak­ing a bold state­ment about ten miles awayin a back­yard in Glen­dale! The blinged-out wing­woman was brought to the Fallen Feath­ers Bird Res­cue after she was found try­ing to get through some­one’s slid­ing glass door —flash­ing the gaudy vest as her en­try­pass!

“When I opened the box and saw it Ilet out a huge laugh,” said Fallen Feath­ers owner Jody Kieran. “I’ve never seen any­thing like this, and I’ve been do­ing this for 20 years.”

Given Olive’s unique abil­ity to ac­ces­sorize,Jody fig­ured it wouldn’t be dif­fi­cult to re­unite her with her owner. A Face­book­post fea­tur­ing the gemmed pi­geon drew an on­slaught of at­ten­tion, even­tu­ally lead­ing her to Mar­lette.

The happy end­ing also brought an an­swer to the mys­tery­be­hind Olive’s Kar­dashian-es­que ac­ces­sory. It “serves as a di­a­per,” Mar­lette said. De­spite the un­sat­is­fac­tory ex­pla­na­tion, the mother and bird re­union is a price­less tale.

“It’s such a beau­ti­ful story, es­pe­cially at this time ofyear,” Mar­lette mused. “We’re all so tired of sad sto­ries and de­press­ing news.We needed a happy end­ing.”

And that’s how or­nately adorned Olive found her­self perched atop this week’s Odd List!
