Lost Bird Spotted Near East Dover Elementary

Students spot tropical bird in tree behind school Monday

After a usual routine of clearing plastic lunch trays and tossing brown paper lunch sacks into the garbage, students head outside into the sunshine to enjoy the back half of an elementary school lunch period. On Monday, an unexpected visitor was flying nearby.

Flitting against a blue sky Monday at East Dover Elementary's rear playground was a tropical bird. Students pointed up at a pine tree, for a bird that appeared lost on the south side of the school property.

A school employee told Toms River Patch the bird was spotted during the last lunch of the Monday school day.

The bird was about the size of a hand and mostly green, with a bright yellow-orange beak and some red plumage on its wings.

Tuesday's lunch, the bird was gone, said the employee.

All kidding aside if anybody has information on this bird we are looking for a peach faced lovebird. The coloring is green a little red with an orange beak. If anybody found it capture that receives it please reply to this. If anyone can capture it somehow there will be a reward.
