RSPCA in search for parakeet's owner.

AN EXOTIC bird perching on your kitchen windowsill is not what you expect to see.

But one Cardiff resident woke up to find exactly this when he was greeted from his morning slumber by a bright green parakeet.

William Ward, 34, of Beaufort Square, Tremorfa, took pictures of the friendly bird, who repeatedly tried to fly into his home.

With the help of a neighbour, William was able to catch the bird and kept it in a box in his living room until the RSPCA arrived to collect it.

William said: "It was flying around my back garden and the square. "It had some quite impressive aerobatics.

"I tried to get it into a box with some nuts and it was bouncing along the wall.

"It looks like it's used to human contact.

"It's not the sort of thing you expect to see on a Saturday morning."

The colourful parakeet has a tag on its leg and a metal ring above its foot.

Telephone the RSPCA's Cardiff branch on 029 2022 0511 if you recognise the bird.
