Default Rescued blue budgie, Brooklyn, NY

I noticed him while I was walking to the park, so I decided to take a video. He was flying around erratically, and seemed distressed. Luckily I was wearing my hat so I was able to place my hat over him and gently put my messenger back under the hat, and get him back to my apartment. This was a few blocks south of Prospect Park.

I'm really glad I acted quickly, because he could have easily gotten stepped on or run over. Here's a video:

I found him earlier this afternoon (July 9th) and after a few hours of being left alone in my bathroom, he is very friendly and readily perches on my finger, and doesn't seem afraid of me anymore.

I watched some videos on youtube about how to care for them. He's drank some water that I put in a dish for him, but he hasn't eaten anything yet. I offered him some sliced orange, banana, and seeds.

He has a tag on his leg starting with BBFC

You can call or text +1-718-219-1822

He's a really sweet friendly creature. But I don't have a cage for him or anything. But he's just been sitting wherever I place him and not really moving much. Also while I was holding him, I saw him trying to clean his feathers with his beak, and I think he has some irritation or infection. He is certainly a bit dirty.

Thank you and karma for rescuing the little lost budgie.

You will want to notify nearby vets, animal shelters etc. You may also want to post on Craiglist indicating you've found a lost budgie.
Since he's so friendly, it sounds as though he is used to being handled and probably escaped through an open door or window of someone's home or apartment.

I would recommend you do not describe him or include a picture.
Make whomever tries to claim him describe him to you instead.

If, after a few weeks, you are unable to find the owners, are you planning to keep the little fellow?

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Oh, sorry about posting the picture, I figured since I didn't reveal his tag number, it wouldn't matter if someone saw his picture.

I posted to 911parrotalert.com and craigslist.

I don't know if I can give him the attention that he needs. I have a friend who can take care of him for awhile, so I'm gonna bring him there. I guess I will have to transport him in a shoebox with some holes punched in it.

Over the last hour or so, he's been talking a lot. But he's also gotten a bit more assertive and is nipping at me a bit. I guess he's getting over the trauma he might have experienced outside.

But I'm very busy, and I travel a lot, so I don't think I can commit to taking care of him. A friend of a friend already owns some birds, and he might be willing to adopt permanently. It's too bad, the little guy is really growing on me.

I thought that animal shelters only took in cats and dogs.

Posting the picture on this forum is fine.
I meant as you are trying to find the owners, you may not wish to post the picture on Craigslist. Sorry for the confusion.

Animal Shelters generally take in most animals
The one linked below is in your general area and has a budgie there at this time.

Sean Casey Animal Rescue | Specializing in the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs, cats, reptiles, birds and small mammals.

Perhaps it would be easiest for you to simply surrender the budgie you found directly to the shelter?
