The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of two parrots found straying in Dundee and Perth.
We were first contacted by an employee of Tesco on South Road, Dundee, who spotted a meyer's parrot in the store's carpark on Thursday evening (9 August).
Now named Tosh, the grey, yellow and green bird is being cared for at our Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre near Dundee.
Animal Rescue Officer Steph Alexander said, "The lady who called us saw Tosh on the ground and managed to coax him over by whistling. She was then able to contain him until we arrived.
"Her surname is Tosh and we thought we'd nickname him after the person who found him.
"Tosh is in good condition so we don't think he's been straying for too long.
"Hopefully his owner will come forward so we can return him home soon."
We were then alerted to another stray parrot found underneath a car in Perth on Sunday (12 August).
A lady spotted the orange-winged Amazon parrot on Princes Street and managed to contain the bird in her cardigan.
The parrot was also taken to our centre near Dundee, where he has been named Scooter.
Animal Rescue Officer Ben Soutar said, "Scooter was rather shy to begin with but is now beginning to talk.
"He says 'hello' as well as some other phrases, but we'll keep these under wraps to help anyone who comes forward prove they are Scooter's owner.
"It's lucky the lady spotted him and was able to move him from under the car as he could easily have been injured or even killed.
"Just recently we rescued stray birds in the Brechin and Cupar area. It's possibly due to warm weather we've been enjoying and people having their windows and doors open.
"Thankfully, following our press appeals, we were able to reunite both the escaped kakariki and parrot with their owners and we're hopeful someone will also recognise Tosh and Scooter and come forward."
Anyone who recognises Tosh or Scooter is being asked to call our Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
