The strangest thing happened. I was out in my back yard the other evening when a strange bird flew over my head and landed in a nearby tree just above my wooden fence. When I got closer, I realized it was a little blue parakeet (budgie.) Being the Jeff Corwin type all of my life, I realized that it was almost dark and knowing that birds don't have the greatest night vision I began a very slow slothlike climb and was able to catch it. Luckily I had a cockatiel cage and now have a little blue parakeet. I believe it is a female because she does not have a blue sere. The thing that concerns me though is that the sere is a dark brown crusty color. She seems very healthy otherwise. She is content being in a cage and lets me get very close to her. Is this sere color OK? and would she have been able to survive in the wild here in South Carolina in January? I am sure she must have escaped from someone as unlike Florida, there are no wild populations of Budgies that I know of in this part of the country? Any help?
