Is this your parrot?

The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of an almost featherless parrot found in Aberdeen last Wednesday.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted when the Senegal parrot was discovered in the Torry area.

The bird is now in the care of the Scottish SPCA’s animal rescue and rehoming centre in Drumoak, where he has been named Apollo by staff.

Animal care assistant Kyle McWhirr said, “Apollo has plucked out all his feathers other than the ones on his head and wings.

“He also has some bruising on his chest and our vet believes he must have flown into something.

“It’s not uncommon for pet birds to escape through an open door or window.”

Anyone who recognises Apollo is being asked to contact the Scottish SPCA’s Aberdeenshire centre on 03000 999 999.
