The African grey is believed to be aged about 17
The hunt is on for the owner of a parrot which was found in the storeroom of health trust offices in Manchester.
The African Grey parrot, believed to be male, was discovered by a member of staff at Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
The bird is thought to be aged about 17 and has a few "war wounds" on his face from wild birds, the RSPCA said.
RSPCA Animal Collection Officer Gina Morrocutti is looking after him at her Oldham home until his owner is found.
"This is a beautiful, friendly parrot and it would be lovely to reunite him with his owners," she said.
"He's very tame and chatty and has a ring on his leg so it's clear he was once owned.
"When I collected him he had a few scars around his face but I think they're a result of him being attacked by wild birds, otherwise he is in very good bodily condition."
The parrot was found in the trust's Bury New Road offices and is believed to have been kept locally.
