Well I went to an adoption place to see about getting another bird and looks like it might happen
Thank all of you for your advice.

It was so good of you to take this bird in and try to help it. If you found him outside there's no telling how long he was out and what he got into while he was out there. He could have eaten something poisonous or drank something bad or gotten some disease. Or he could have been sick already and the previous owners just let him go. Nothing but speculation here and I am sorry for your loss.

If the bird never ate or drank anything, then that is your clue that it was very sick when you found it. There is no way to tell what he died of without a necropsy, and that is basically a bird autopsy.

Because it is possible that this bird died of a disease it got from wild birds, you need to sterilize anything the bird was around, and anything you touched without washing your hands after handling the bird.

The bird could have had an internal injury, a disease or an illness. The only thing you could have possibly done different would be to have taken the bird to an avian vet, so don't feel bad.

Thank you for trying to help this bird.
