SAGAMIHARA, Japan, May 7 (UPI) -- Authorities in Japan said a parakeet captured at a hotel was returned to its owners after it was able to give its address to police.

Sagamihara police said the male budgerigar was captured April 29 at a hotel when it perched on a guest's shoulder and was returned to its owner, a 64-year-old woman, after officers heard it repeating an address Tuesday night, Kyodo News reported Monday.

"We never thought that we could find the owner in this manner," a police officer said.
