Yosuke, the lost parrot, knows his place

I've noted a lot of oddities for the blog but haven't gotten to them for months, having been overwhelmed by political oddities, so here's one to start.
Wandering Yosuke (to the left) gave up his ID and street address to a probably kindly vetinarian.
"I'm Mr. Yosuke Nakamura," the bird told the veterinarian, according to [local policeman Shinjiro] Uemura.  The parrot also provided his full home address, down to the street number, and even entertained the hospital staff by singing songs.
With the police he wasn't as forthcoming.
"I tried to be friendly and talked to him, but he completely ignored me," Uemura said.
Maybe this singing parrot is distantly related to my other favorite parrot, SNOWBALL, dancing this time to Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust."

Here's the story of Snowball as told by Irena to the NWI Times. Don't miss his dance to the Back Street Boys, apparently his favorite group.
