Help I have Found A Parrot

If you find a parrot the law states that the finder must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the owner is found, one of these steps is to list adverts on open websites such as www.parrotalert.com  List an advert on www.petsreunited.com this is a really good site that will contact vets, rescue centres, animal charities in your area to alert them of your a found parrot and then put up posters in your local area saying where the bird was found. 

DO NOT give out too much detail about the found parrot to ensure that the parrot is reunited to the rightful owner. If the found parrot has a ring on do not reveal the unique ring number to anyone, it is up to the owner to provide the finder with the matching ring number as their proof of ownership. Have the found parrot scanned for a microchip with a local vet (this is a free service) if the found parrot is injured please hand in to an Avian vet who will treat the bird accordingly.  Please see our section - List of avian vets.
