Parrot missing for years returns speaking Newfoundlandish.

(SNN) - A pet parrot, that spoke with a Lebanese accent when it disappeared from its home four years earlier, has been reunited with its owner - and the bird now speaks Newfoundlandish.

The reunion was brought about by a Cornwall, PEI veterinarian who mistook Ayman, a blue-and-yellow macaw, for her own missing bird.

Bonnie Beaver tracked Ayman's identification microchip to Grabbir Boubi, a Lebanese-Canadian who lives in Montreal.

"I introduced myself and said, 'Have you lost a bird?'" Beaver told the Sage. "He initially said, 'No', but he thought I meant recently."

When she verified Boubi's name and said she had his blue-and-yellow macaw, "He looked at me like I was crazy."

He said his bird went missing four years earlier.

Little is known about Ayman's whereabouts the past four years, but Boubi says the bird's Lebanese accent is now morphed into an ethnic sounding Newfie with a hint of French.

Boubi was emotional at the reunion, even though Ayman bit him on his finger and told him, “Kiss a cod eh, Bismilallah!”

Beaver advised the Sage that Aymen should settle back into his old life.

One week after the reunion, the Sage looked into Grabbir Boubi and Ayman. "Ayman's doing oh-kay," advised Boubi. "The only issue is his drinking. The odd thing is that I don't have alcohol in my house, but every morning there are empty bottles of Screech Rum in the sitting room."
