Not such a pretty boy, then? Plea over featherless parrot
Senegal parrot Apollo believed to have plucked out his feathers due to stress or boredom.
A pet Senegal parrot has been found almost featherless in Aberdeen.
Scottish SPCA officers believe the bird, which they have named Apollo, has plucked his own feathers out due to stress or boredom.
The animal charity is now appealing for Apollo's owners to come forward.
He was found in the Torry area on Wednesday and is being looked after at the Scottish SPCA rescue centre in Drumoak, Aberdeenshire.
Animal care assistant Kyle McWhirr said: "Apollo has plucked out all his feathers other than the ones on his head and wings. He also has some bruising on his chest and our vet believes he must have flown into something.
"A lot of birds pluck their feathers due to boredom or stress. Senegal parrots aren't known for speaking much but Apollo is starting to make noises such as squeaks and whistles.
"It's not uncommon for pet birds to escape through an open door or window so we think there may be someone looking for Apollo. If no one comes forward we'll find him a loving new home."
Anyone who recognises Apollo is asked to contact the Scottish SPCA's Aberdeenshire centre on 03000 999999
