Screensaver Baffles Firemen

Firemen searched an office building for an hour for a trapped parrot only to find the noise was coming from a computer screensaver.
Crews were called to the Midlands Building in Willenhall, Iowa after a security guard raised the alarm. The guard thought that the distressed cries of 'Who's a pretty boy' were coming from a gap in the roof.
It wasn't until firemen kicked down an office door that they found the PC parrot on a computer that had been left on overnight.
"It was a screen saver which had its volume turned right up and there was a parrot squawking," said West Midlands Fire Service Officer Dave Hinkle.
