POWELL, Ohio (AP) - A blue and gold macaw that flew away from a central Ohio zoo during a training session has been returned to its perch there.

Staff captured the bird Tuesday afternoon about 3 miles from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1NzZAtn ) reports a nearby resident, 59-year-old Anne Schueren, is credited with helping find the bird. She was walking her dog around noon Tuesday when she saw the bird and posted a photo on Facebook.

Soon after, messages began appearing telling her that it was missing from the zoo. She called zoo officials, who sent staff to retrieve the bird.

Officials say the macaw was one of the birds featured in the zoo’s daily Animals on Safari show.
