Your picture did not upload, so you'll need to try to upload it again when you can.

The only yellow parrot I know of is the Queen of Bavaria or Golden Conure as it is called by both names. Do some research on the internet using both the Queen of Bavaria Conure and Golden Conure words and see if this is not the bird you have.

Very important here is that you immediately take this bird to an Avian (bird) Vet in your driving area to have it checkd for infections and parasites as birds outside tend to get both and will die from one or the other. The other issue is food, and all parrots need to be eating 80-85% organic pelleted diets which Tracie carries out here. Harrisons is good and Avian Vet endorsed, and she also has a few more that are good to mix with it as well. Changing from seed to pellets takes some time, and A TRIP TO THE AVIAN VET HAS TO BE DONE BEFORE ANY CHANGES OR TRAINING IS DONE WITH THIS BIRD because a sick bird needs medical help.

Thanks for writing and keep us updated on what Avian Vet has to say and we'll look for your picture later.
