Charlie Again

Hello -
Can anyone kindly tell me what type of bird we have?
"Charlie" was chased into our front by a crow and my husband went to Charlie aid. Charlie let my husband pick him and sat my his shoulder. Needless to say... Charlie liked my husband. We had Charlie a year now, nobody has claimed him and we are wondering details about Charlie as he has become a part of our family now. Any info would be greatly appreicated. Thank you!! CBennie

Asmall green parrot has been flying around here for about 2 years( i have been told) he ofter comes into the garden. The neighbours feed him apples and fruit. What more can we do for it? I dont wanr to cage it but let it fly free if wont come to harm. Is there any other food it need?

I just wonder if you checked with 911parrot alert to see if someone lost this bird and is terribly missing it or would at least like to know that it is found. I would be so upset if my parrot got out and would fear the worst. These little guys cost about $650.00. They are sturdy little birds and it is good that you rescued - just wondering if by chance you checked locally. Sometimes people look for their birds for years and finally are reunited.

You have a Meyer's Parrot

You have a Meyer's parrot. You can read more about them on our Meyer's Parrot page.

I am glad he found your home! I must mention that the bar spacing is too large for this bird. The bird should not be able to stick it's head out, as cute as that is. ;-) It is possible that some day he might REALLY want to escape the cage and get his body stuck. They have hollow bones that break easily, so he could die before you even know he is stuck.
