Owner sought for lost parrot


AN AFRICAN grey parrot is searching for its owners after being discovered in a Scot’s garden.

The exotic bird was rescued by the Scottish SPCA after being spotted by an Airdrie resident on Tuesday.

Now named Mickey, the parrot is being cared for at the charity’s Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

Mickey may have escaped as his cage was being spring-cleaned

The centre’s Gillian Boyle said, “Mickey is a friendly bird who is used to people so it’s very likely someone is missing their pet.

“It’s surprising how many stray parrots arrive in our care. They tend to escape when their owners are cleaning out their cages or letting them fly around a room.

“All it takes is for a door or window to be open and they’re off.

“There is an identification ring on Mickey’s leg and its unique number will help us ensure anyone who comes forward is the owner.

“We hope someone recognises this beautiful bird as we’d really like to return Mickey home.”


Anyone with information about Mickey is being asked to call the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
