A Florida biker was so excited he couldn’t sleep when he learned his beloved parrot, Spike, was alive and would be returned to him the next day.

“I had tears of joy. It was overwhelming,” Mike Mularz said.

Spike, a 22-year-old female macaw, was perched on Mularz’s bike, painted in blue and gold colors to match the bird, at a parking lot in Daytona Beach when somebody took Spike at around 11 p.m. on March 12, 2016.

For six days, Mularz looked for the bird, passing out flyers and offering a $1,000 reward.

Then he got a call from a man who said he had Spike, that she was ok, and would be returned to Mularz in the morning.

Mularz was overjoyed.

“It was too much to sleep that night. I didn’t get any sleep,” he said.

He didn’t know why was Spike taken in the first place. He was just grateful to have her back.

Speaking to KTVU, with Spike back with him, Mularz heaped biker praise on the parrot.

“She’s hardcore. She rides Harley and lays eggs,” he said.
