The macaw landed on a girl's shoulder as she walked in Dunfermline town centre
A parrot suffering from a cold is being treated by animal welfare officers after it landed on a girl's shoulder as she walked in Dunfermline, Fife.
The macaw, which is native to Mexico and Central and South America, is being cared for by the Scottish SPCA Wildlife Rescue Centre at Middlebank.
Now the charity is hoping to find the macaw's owners.
If no-one comes to claim the bird, which was rescued on Sunday, it will be transferred to a rehoming centre.
Colin Seddon, centre manger, said: "This little macaw was weak on arrival and suffering from a cold.
"However, after some feeding, care and a bit of warmth it responded well. It's really friendly and likes to sit on your shoulder and chatter away.
"We're greeted with a very cheery 'hello' whenever we go near the cage, which is quite unusual for us given we're much more accustomed to looking after wild birds.
"The macaw has obviously been well cared for and loved so we're hopeful that the owner will come forward."
