Parrot found

You can post some info about your found bird on Craigslist in the Northern NJ Pets section. It's free. People look there all the time when they've lost/found a pet. It sounds like it might be a lovebird you've found. Your library may have a book on parrots, and you can identify the bird that way. If you find the owner, have them claim the bird by giving you its band #. This will weed out anyone looking to gain a free bird, and ensure the bird will be given to the proper owner. If no owner turns up and you don't wish to keep the bird, you might want to surrender the bird to a good bird rescue in your area. Good luck to you.

While waiting to hear from someone who may have lost this bird, you will need to feed it, water it and keep it clean. It, most likely, has mites and/or other parasites inside and out, so please also take him to an Avian Vet in your area for a checkup to make sure he is not sick or carrying parasites that are hurting him. The truth of the matter, is you may just have yourself a new bird, though I'm not sure of what it is. If anyone else knows, they'll write to you as well.

It does not sound like an Amazon, Grey, Macaw or Cockatoo. It could be some kind of either Conure or Sunbird what with the bright colors. The Avian Vet will be your best bet on identifying what species bird is.You'll need to have them help you identify species when you take him in for an exam. That information will need to be forwarded to the help line another person gave to you. You can also put up notices, with pictures, in vet's offices, grocery stores and other public places in your area. Contact your local Humane Society or other Animal Rescue people and enlist their help. One of them may even be willing to take bird off your hands if you have pictures, and have had it examined by an Avian Vet so it has a clean bill of health. YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN AS THE RESCUER AND DETAIL PERSON FOR THIS LITTLE BIRD, so do the best you can.

Thanks for writing and let us know how this goes.
