Matilda, a red-tailed black cockatoo, escaped from Tracy Aviary Saturday during a training session.

Initially, she flew out of the aviary and landed on a tree where staff could spot her. Eventually she flew away and remained at large for three days.

She was returned to the aviary Tuesday evening after residents of Belaire Drive, in the foothills north of Parley's Canyon, spotted her in a tree and called the aviary.

Staff climbed the tree and retreived her. Belaire Drive is about a four-mile drive from the aviary.
