(CNN)Turns out, things aren't always what they seem ... or what they sound like.
That's the lesson Florida police officers learned earlier this week after they responded to a call that turned out to be much different than what they thought.
Deputies in Lake Worth Beach arrived at a home to help "someone screaming for help," the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said on Facebook.
"Hilarity ensued," the sheriff's office said on Facebook.
In a video police shared, a man is seeing working on his car when about four officers arrive in his driveway.
He looks toward what appears to be a back yard, and yells 'Rambo.'
"I'll bring out the screamer to you," he says.
As they wait, the man steps away and comes back with a friend -- his pet parrot.
The green bird greets the officers who seem to share a laugh about the incident and bids them goodbye.
