    Bird is the Word

    Thought I would share a few pics of my new friend here (bad quality pics as you likely guessed)
    Background: I saw this little feller trying to eat from the seed trays in the backyard 2 days ago. I say trying because other wild birds swiftly attacked it as it clumsily flew away only to try again. It seemed like a lost pet being pretty skinny & somewhat human friendly. It took me 2 days of being a human bird seed feeder to get it to trust me. After a few more hours of sweating in the sun I finally caught it.

    It ate & drank nonstop once I took it inside. Its pretty friendly so Ill fatter it up & try to rehome it asap.

    It's a boy. I bet if you keep him long enough you might hear a few whistles or words.

    Cute! Should be easily tame-able if you can get it to associate you with food. Looks like you're already on that path. Could make a great pet!

    Awesome - Good for you!

    What kind of bird is it? Is it a parrot?

    Zath said its a little parakeet. Its been so long that it didn't click for me at first (had a few as a kid). I'll try to get some better pics tomorrow. Its really bright =)
    Surprisingly the lil guy didn't try to bite me when I nabbed it
    I'll see if its happy with me, but I really like it. Think I should keep it longterm as a pet?

    Parakeets are parrots.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
