Thank you everyone for the comments, mutation, and name suggestions! All very good ones! I think that spot is cute too, just haven't seen one before...makes me want to rub his head and "fix" it! lol

Although there is no way to touch him right now, he won't let you!

His green is so bright it reminds me of tropical islands and the vibrant green trees...or a green slushy or Popsicle!

Hopefully we can train him to like our hands and come to us instead of being afraid. Of course we want him to have out of cage time but he won't move from his mirror. Which we won't leave in there while training, but right now it is there to make him feel more comfortable!

Aww he is a super cutie...
What a gorgeous boy. I think Pop (short for popsicle as you said) is a cute name some people associate this with grandad though i suppose
Lemon drop?

He is a charmer with green so vibrant and healthy looking. I think the small spot on his head is the cutest one like a birth mark. This spins off a name like Birmark.

Congrats on getting him, Lisa.

Those are some great names, I will suggest them to Nancy. And Roland you are right, it is like a little birthmark! I just want to kiss it...hopefully soon! lol

I did find the person who rescued him. The man said he found this budgie outside foraging for grass seed on the ground. He said the budgie was easy to catch and came right to him. I am thinking the humane society might have really frightened him and that is why he is so skittish. Plus the way they were trying to catch him was really frightening. I hope we can change that because the way he is now I do not think he would be easy to catch. But we have plenty of time to tame him, slow and easy is the key! I wonder if he will learn to talk. All of our budgies have been talkers. He still doesn't eat very much, but he is eating and that is good.

He is still nameless, but we will find the right name for him.

Naming is important, definitely take your time with that
I think he is very lucky you took him home i am sure with some TLC he will come around eventually especially if he came to the man's hand when he was first found, surely he was tame in his first home

A normal budgie who is split for pied, sometime will have a spot on the back of head. But you can only be sure if you breed him.

Yep, naming a budgie is very important especially if you want them to say it. lol It should be a name that fits him first and then easy to say for the budgie...at lest that is what I think! lol

And no...no breeding in our future so I guess we will never know for sure!
