Twerpie the cockatiel is 16 years old and he is afraid of heights. In the house he will only fly UP, and he always needs to be helped back down to his cage or onto the floor, a tabletop, or a family member's shoulder. So when Twerpie flew the coop and was out of the house for the first time ever, his human (Charlie) feared that he might never find his way back home. Working in concentric circles around home base, Charlie estimates that he hiked about 23 miles looking for Twerpie until, 48 hours later, a neighbor sighted him 60 feet up in the branches of an elm tree, just four blocks from home.
