Coffee shop has sick bird perky again.
Byline: RECORD reporter
A HOT drink from a coffee shop helped save a sickly lovebird.
SSPCA officers were alerted on Wednesday when a man discovered the distressed bird - the species is a native of Africa - in his Dumfries garden.
But the ailing pet got his pecker up with a syrupy sip.
Animal rescue officer Tracy Cannon said: "The poor wee guy looked like he had no life left, so a Colleague ran to a nearby Costa for warm water and sugar and within half an hour he was on my shoulder, chirping."
The lovebird, dubbed " Costa, is now under the wing of the Scottish SPCA.
It is thought colourful Costa fled a family home. If you can help him return, call 03000 999 999.
