This morning we reported a stray canary that had been seen as a stray in the snow.

The stray canary had been seen this morning in a garden near Princess Royal Centre at Les Ozouet.

Only an hour ago the brird flew into a home near Melodonia on Route de la Houge de Pommier,.

Geoff George GSPCA Animal Collection Officer braved the snow and caught the bird which is now at the GSPCA and we are delighted to report we have found the owner who is on her way.

Helen Holmes GSPCA Admin Manager said "I've just taken the call and the owner is on her way."

"The canary is so pretty and he is very lucky to have survived in this weather."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "If this little canary hadn't have been caught he would have likely perished with the temperatures, weather and wind due."

"We were all very worried for the tiny bird when we got the message through that there was a stray canary spotted this morning in the snow and a huge thanks to the finder and to Geoff for going out to get him as it is still very snowy here in St Andrews."

"We are delighted to report his owner is on route to collect him and he is now safe and warm at the GSPCA."

"We have a number of canaries looking for homes at the GSPCA and we are open for viewing 11am to 430pm each day for anyone interested."
