Smile The story of how we got Connie

Winters in Massachusetts are really harsh and unforgiving. Freezing temperatures, icy winds, not to mention snow--so you could imagine our surprise when in early December we saw a parakeet at our bird feeder!

She flew with the house sparrows and was eating the sunflower seeds quite contently with the flock, though she was obviously freezing and all fluffed up. If we opened the door she flew away with the rest of the birds and later came back with them. We decided to put out a spray of millet and she began munching away.

We knew she wouldn't survive as the weather was going to plummet down in the coming days, but we had no idea what to do since she wasn't tame. However, my dad said that he could catch her...

Well, in all of five minutes with a box, string, and some parakeet mix, my dad caught her!

She surprisingly had no injuries, though she was underweight. She didn't seem terribly scared either, I think she was a little happy to be in a nice warm house.

We figure that she was probably a pet but either got out somehow or was let go. We looked but unfortunately there were no lost bird flyers around or ads online.

It is now the end of February and she has become great friends with Charlie and Twila!









(I read the rules and I am unsure if it is a rule break to post these pictures. These were taken before we caught her, I don't condone bringing parakeets outside! If you would like me to delete the pictures let me know, sorry if I did something wrong!!)

Moderator's Warning:
These pictures have been approved by the Talk Budgies staff as they were taken prior to Connie's rescue and adoption.
We are grateful Em's family was able to rescue little Connie and give her a safe and loving forever home.

Em,

Your story about little Connie is wonderful.

I'm so very glad you were able to rescue her from the harsh Massachusetts winter and provide her with a safe and loving forever home.

(Karma is winging it's way to you!)

I look forward to seeing more pictures of Connie, Charlie and Twila in the days to come!

I'm very glad Connie was rescued by your father and found a great new forever home. This was such a blessing and a true early Christmas miracle for both Connie and your family.

I also have a green rescued stray budgie whose name starts with a C.
His name is Carioca and you can see him on my signature picture.

That is so funny we both have stray's with names that start with C--plus they're both green! Carioca is striking! What a handsome guy!

It's a really nice coincidence and thank you! On June 23rd it will make 6 years since I've had him.
And may your Connie and my Carioca continue be with our families for many happy years to come!

Such a lovely happy ending story. Connie is beautiful she looks very happy and I guess your Dad is a budgie whisperer.

Connie is such a precious little girl and it's remarkable she survived so well through the winter with her house sparrow friends! I'm so glad you were able to rescue her and give her a loving forever home. She's so fortunate and kind, loving person like you took her in

I hope to see more of her and the others in the days to come
