The strangest looking brightly colored bird was rescued in the UK by Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.

The rescuers couldn’t figure out what was going on at first.

They then smelled a strong familiar odor and realized … the bright color and strong smell was curry powder.

Somehow this bird managed to douse himself completely in curry powder to the point he couldn’t fly. But not to worry, wildlife experts are experience in cleaning chronically dirty animals.

A bath or two latter and the bird was back to him happy self.

“We’ve cleaned him up and he is doing well, with no upset tummy! Hopefully he’ll stick to a much more bland diet in the future!!” said Lucy Kells.
