Manny the Macaw has been found (see below photos for clue answers). However, he was not returned to us, and no one has claimed the prize. So, this necessarily means that someone in this community sabotaged this contest. Having anticipated this possibility in advance (see Calling Out Bullies page), there was a meeting about this, and some of the attendees are shown here:
Here are the photos in answer to the clues:
Manny was next to Bourgeois Poetry by Vicki Roberts, a poetry book written and published by your Editor. All of the clues were poems written by your Editor (see clue poems below).

Manny has left Clue #3! After you read Clue #1 and Clue #2 below, check out Manny's latest poetic pointer:
I heard you all the other night,
Down the hall and to the right;
My tail’s aflutter, I know you’re near,
Come on in and find me here!
Someone find my hidden nest,
‘Neath the shelf where poets rest;
Now it’s time to take me home,
Away from where the readers roam.

Manny has left us another clue! After you read his first clue below, check out this follow up Clue #2:
Here’s the lowdown on where I’m perched,
Someone came close as they hunted and searched;
To be lost and found like some things I see,
Maybe somebody can come and find me.

Manny the Macaw has flown the coop! Our contest is in full swing! He is in hiding somewhere waiting to be found! The lucky resident who finds and returns him receives a $10 gift card. He left us this enigmatic clue:
I'm under cover and out of sight,
But rest assured I won't take flight,
You can read between the lines,
But, shhh, no talking, heed the signs.
