U.F.O.

Here is another bird that showed up in my yard. I am not too swift when it comes to identifying our feathered friends. He looks like a giant Parakeet or some sort of small parrot. If any one knows what he is, let us know. I asked him and he kept requesting crackers.

  1. I"m going with a parakeet something or other.

  2. I think you identified him so now it is an IFO.
    Pretty bird though. MB

  3. Gee, for a minute I thought it was somebody's lost parakeet. I took a photo in India of a bird very much like this, but darned if I know what he was.

  4. Could it be a lorikeet? Highly coloured - I remember them in Australia. Maybe, as you suggest, it's a parakeet.

    Thanks so much for blog birthday wishes, b Squared.

  9. Well, maybe if you gave him a cracker he'd give you some information!

    He's not one of the many green parrots that terrorize the neighborhoods; probably a pet that got loose.

    It's nice that you have facilities to feed him though.

  10. He look like a big parakeet to me, but I'm not sure! I used to see them wild when I lived in Sarasota. I wish I had those on my feeder here, but it gets too cold.

  11. his/her? colors seem muted to me, but I know nothing about such birds.
    Snow storm is starting with 10-15 inches predicted -- B glad you are in south!
    Shakespeare: do you the Canadian TV series called Slings and Arrows about a theater company, most certainly based on Canada's Stratford? It is probably the best thing ever done on TV (excepting maybe Sopranos for those who love/loath New Jersey).

  16. Monk Parakeet, I'm pretty sure. An "alien invader". His beady eye seems to be demanding that you put out something more substantial than birdseed to eat!

  17. Now those we don't get but it looks parakeet-like to me, too.

  18. A very interesting bird--I wonder if it's an escaped Pet or a naturalized or native bird. How big is it?

    Cool capture!

  19. I see we have a lot of bird experts here, and I'm one of them. As near as I can get is "some kind of parrot thing."

  20. Can a parakeet live in the wild down there? He's pretty, whatever he is!
