We Have a Visitor

Yesterday we were sitting on our back porch when this little parakeet flew by.  He let us get pretty close to him and I could tell he was really tired because he kept nodding off. There were 3 hawks calling and hunting all around our house so I knew he would soon be a meal if we couldn't catch him. Eventually we were able to entice him to eat some birdseed and Mike was able to get him to hop onto his hand and put him into an old cage I have.  So far we have not been able to find out who lost him.   When I was a child we had a parakeet for a while, but I have no desire to keep one these days, so would anyone like a very sweet (and tired) parakeet???

  1. I liek the environmental shot along with the one with him having his eyes closed. On the closed eyes I wish you had not cut off his tail feathers.
