MIRAMAR, Fla., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they are searching for a stolen macaw parrot known to say Spanish phrases, bark like a dog and cough.

Miami-Dade police said the bird was stolen Aug. 20 from the Miramar home of Rodolfo Rondon, 36, and the bird-nappers partially appeared on a surveillance video with their silver BMW, the Miami Herald reported Friday.

Rondon said the bird's vocabulary includes "que paso papo," Spanish for "what's uo, daddy-o?" as well as "flaca," a skinny woman, and the sounds of barking dogs and coughing.

The bird has also been known to say "Jonathan, Alex, Elvira, Rodo and chaky," Rondon said.
