Default New Rescued Budgie Pics

Hi everyone! I took some pictures of Nancy's new rescued budgie yesterday and I thought I would share them with you.

He is such a bright green, and very pretty. I am hoping someone can tell us his mutation and if possible how old you think he is. We are thinking he is still young even though he doesn't have any baby bars. Also, he is very tiny but looks healthy. Vet appointment is coming up so we will know how much he really weighs and his overall health.

He is still very skittish and will turn his back when approached. Finally saw him actually eating. Nancy was worried that he doesn't eat because she doesn't have to change his food often and she is only giving him a little to help monitor how much he is eating but he ate quite a bit yesterday. But only eats the seed, and not anything else. Still new so we want to make sure he is eating something for now.

Do you see that yellow spot on his head? What is that, I have never seen a "spot" on a birds head like that before. At first I thought it was missing or ruffled feathers but the more I looked the more I realize it is just a spot, there are no missing feathers.

Also, any name suggestions? Nancy is thinking Charlie, Henry, or Oliver...he doesn't look anything like those names to me! I was thinking Rio because of his bright colors but ideas are welcome. It took us almost 3 months to come up with our last birds name Misty.

Thank you everyone for looking and helping with his mutation and everything else.

Lisa

What a cutie, congrats!

My little budgie has a white spot on her head that looks just like that. She's already been through one molt with us and it is still there.

He's very handsome and I'm sure he's going to be happy that your family is going to love and care for him!

I like his little yellow spot! Sunny has several and I think they are adorable

The first two names that popped into my head were Alwyn (wise one) and Gwaine (battle hawk). I also like Brodie.

You have a very beautiful Normal Green Male.

Kyle is right about the age.

Don't worry about the spot on the head. These spots are there from small ones to real big ones.

How about "Sparky".
