I found a white/blue parakeet yesterday in the woods near my home. We live in Central florida. This parakeet flew right onto my husband's tractor and then flew down to the ground where he was standing and allowed him to pick him up. This little bird immediately started chirping and pecking at his ear. He definitely was a very happy and tame bird.
We brought him inside (so the hawks wouldn't get him) and he drank and then fell asleep in my arms and slept for 3 hours cuddled in my arms. He was so still at one point I thought he had died. We got him a cage that night and food. Since then he has made very little noise and has slept all the time except when he eats. He also does not want to come out of his cage and is not the tame little bird we first found. It is only day 2 but I am concerned why his behavior may be so different than yesterday when we found him. Any help would be so much appreciated.
