Five birds rescued by animal charity after escaping during warm weather
An animal welfare charity is searching for the owners of five birds who escaped from their homes during the weekend.
The Scottish SPCA has rescued two budgies, a canary, a parakeet and an exotic sun conure from various locations across Aberdeenshire during the warm weather.
The birds are now being cared for at the charity’s Aberdeenshire base at Drumoak, near Banchory.
Graeme Innes, centre manager, said: "All of these birds are friendly and well cared for so we are pretty confident they all have owners who are missing them.
"It's likely they have escaped through windows or doors that have been left open due to the warm weather we've been enjoying.
"Casper, a blue budgie, was found by a member of the public in Aden Park, Mintlaw, while Chelsea, a white and blue budgie, was handed in to Kingswells vets after flying into someone's home in Wellside Circle, Kingswells.
"Cheeky the canary flew into a kitchen in Westerton Crescent and Oliver the parakeet was handed in to us after being spotted in a Peterculter garden.
"Finally, Sunny, the sun conure, which is a small to medium sized parrot, was found on the roadside in Lemon Grove, Peterhead.”
Anyone who recognises the birds can contact the centre on 03000 999 999.
