A man poached a parrot from a Petland store in Brooklyn by stuffing the exotic bird into his pocket and then walking out, cops said.
The suspect could be seen on video cramming the blue Quaker parrot into a plastic bag at the Petland on Graham Avenue in Williamsburg on Tuesday before hiding the pet in his pocket, according to police.
Quaker parrots tend to be active birds and can mimic human speech.
The bird is estimated to be worth hundreds of dollars.
The man fled in an unknown direction and cops were searching for the parrot thief on Thursday night.
