After a hard afternoon of yard work on Friday, Monte and I were sitting on the back patio enjoying a brewski. Keeto was out there with us in his cage (sans brewski). I caught a flash of blue at the bird feeder. It was a budgie! And a blue one at that.
It appears to be a young male. I didn’t see a band, and the wings don’t appear to be clipped, so I don’t know if it is wild or escaped. He didn’t stay long, but I saw him again Friday, several times on Saturday, and again this morning. I have named him Niño. 🙂 I will put a cage out to see if he wants to take shelter.
What a sweet treat!

Wow. Neat. He looks like Keto! Did Keto see him from his cage since he was outside with you?
Yes, I think they noticed each other.
If he is looking for a home… he’ll never find a nicer one. “Here birdie, birdie.”
