A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Poor thing. I wonder how it got there. I hope its owner replies.
I hope so too!!
Maybe take a pic and put up notices around the area? A lot of people won't be looking at this site or have access to it. A bit of a pain, I know – I have a wandering cat so I know about circulating flyers!
It's definitely a lovebird and not one of the wild green parakeets??
Yep, def sounds like a lovebird with that colouring. Also if it's that tame it must belong to someone. I suppose you could try the local police to see if anyone has reported it missing… or the RSPB. Are you OK feeding it?
Good idea - I will try both of those in the AM. Yes I have been feeding it apples and seeds - and It's been tucking in happily and I have ordered specialised food to arrive tomorrow. Thank you!
I've looked on Google. The green parakeets have long tails and are pretty much green all over. Lovebirds have much shorter tails, red faces and a flash of blue feathers in the tail.
If in doubt maybe contact the RSPB?
Yes it's definitely a lovebird. Thanks for this! It is certainly a pet - it came and sat on my shoulder while I was doing the washing up! It must have a loving family looking for it :(
I am feeding it fine but I don't have a cage or anywhere to keep it - it'll be fine roaming free in the kitchen for now but if anyone has a temporary cage for it until it's owners are found that would be hugely appreciated.
(also apologies for all the typos above - I must have been distracted)
Thank you for all of your help Diana and VGB
I hope it can be reunited with its family, but if not it sounds like its taken a shine to you : )
