A parrot which used to live in a taxi firm office has left neighbours spitting feathers by squawking out cab booking details.
Residents in a street in the Govan area of Glasgow called police to complain about anti-social behaviour from the bird.
Officers visited the owner in his Uist Street home on Tuesday to discuss the problem and found the parrot on its perch chirping "Taxi for Govan Road".
A local officer tweeting for Strathclyde Police's Govan Twitter account wrote: "Noise complaint report, culprit turned out to be a parrot that used to live in a taxi office, shouting things like 'Taxi for Govan road!'.
"I'm glad to say it's no wind up, you see all sorts in this line of work. My favourite call this week though."
A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police added: "Police were responding to complaints about a noise within a property in the Uist Street area of Govan. Police carried carried out enquiries and it quickly became apparent that the source of the noise was a parrot.
"Officers have concluded their enquiries. They spoke to the householder - but not the parrot - and no further action is being taken."
