Polly wants a walk! Adorable moment a PARROT latches onto American expat’s head during afternoon stroll on Spain’s Costa del Sol – before being reunited with his worried owner

Cafe con Parrot? An American expat made a friend during their afternoon coffee after a parrot took up residence on their head. 

Michele Jordan and her husband were enjoying an afternoon coffee in Honore, Estepona when a parrot flew up to their table. 

The ‘friendly’ bird ‘stayed quite a while’ with the couple, even hopping on Michele’s head. Even when the pair set off on a walk around town, the grey parrot continued to follow them. 

She posted about the incident on Estepona Info and Chat, a local Facebook group, in hopes of finding the owner.

Luckily, the owner, a local Spanish lady, swooped in and claimed the bird.
