    Bonnie is back home.

    Someone turned in the missing 92-year-old parrot to police after it was stolen three days earlier, according to police in Seagoville.

    As NBC DFW first reported on Friday, someone took the bright green bird with yellow markings, along with her cage, from the front porch of her North Texas home.

    Bonnie's owner, Kathy Gardner, was worried sick.

    "She's been in the family for many, many years," Gardner said. "These three days [with the parrot missing] has been really hard on us."

    Seagoville Police Chief Ray Calverley said a person dropped off Bonnie at the Balch Springs Police Department. Officers will look at video footage to try and figure out who left the bird.

    "I can only imagine how good it feels for the family," Calverley said. Bonnie has "been in this family for generations and I know they're ecstactic to have her back."

    Gardner said Bonnie talked and sqawked on the way home from the police station.

    "I'm just thankful that they had it in their heart to do that because she's old and she don't know nobody else but us," Gardner said.
