A heartbroken New York City man is desperately searching for his opera-singing parrot.

Captain, a 25-year-old green and yellow Amazon parrot, flew off Allen Kirson's shoulder as they went biking in Brooklyn on the day after Thanksgiving.

The New York Post (http://nyp.st/t8DUOT) says the talented bird who "loves to sing opera" has performed at senior citizen homes and children's hospitals.

Kirson says Captain also dances, and has a big vocabulary.
