Man with parrot in Roslindale

So anybody lose a parrot in Roslindale today? Like on or near Canterbury Street? Because James Jones-O'Brien here was just relaxing in his yard, almost asleep, in fact, when all of a sudden this bird just landed on him, his wife, Angela, reports (after first taking the photo, of course).

BJ Ray reports he was walking his two dogs in Stony Brook Reservation (where West Roxbury, Hyde Park and Roslindale come together) around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday when the dogs darted after something - and promptly got attacked by about six coyotes.

3 or 4 dragged May off out of my sight. I was running through the woods at top speed and screaming. Rosie was unscathed and May was missing for a good 2 or 3 minutes. I was screaming for her (and freaking out) until finally she popped out from behind or under a rock. She had a few scrapes and a cut on her back. The coyotes didn't run away, by the way. They were half surrounding us and barking/howling. It was pretty harrowing.

Missing falcon

Missing Dogs Massachusetts is a Facebook page that's normally just what it sounds like. So a posting today is a little unusual, but, then, there aren't many places to look for a missing falcon:

BOLO: Beloved family falcon is missing, last seen Plum Island area. She is very friendly and social and will likely seek out humans by landing on a car or a house, and squawk at them. Still has tether on.
