This is Allen Kirson, owner of Captain, an Amazonian parrot that is internationally famous for singing everything from opera to folk songs. Alarmingly, Captain suddenly flew off Kerson’s shoulder during a visit to Ocean Parkway in November. Since then, Kerson has been plastering South Brooklyn with fliers in his all-out search, which has included visits to animal shelters, Midwood rabbis, and animal psychics. Now, he’s written a play about this ordeal called “The Moveable Feast: Searching for Yehuda Bird.” You can see this “40% improvised” play tonight at Congregation Sheves Achim on Avenue H (718-338-8442; www.flatbushminyan.com). It’s running every Thursday at 8 and 10 pm until the end of February.
Captain mainly sings arias, but Kirson said she was really a country-western bird that could do harmony and loved Hank Williams and Bob Dylan. “We had real conversations,” Kirson told the Brooklyn Daily. ”Most pet owners have psychic connections with their pets … she was my companion for six years.”
