    An unusual visitor to our garden on Saturday. Not sure what the poor little chap or chapess’s chances are going to be out there in the wild though :blank::

    I know parakeets (budgerigar) survive an Indiana winter, so this one has as good a chance as a sparrow or the like.

    We have quite a lot of parakeet colonies here too now, certainly a squadron of them in our road and gardens.

    London's Parakeets: Everything You Need To Know

    My fear for the budgie, presumably an escapee, is predators, likely other birds. I hope the little critter makes it, but guess I’ll never know. Of course, it could have been flying free for a long time already.

    I tried to coax it into my hand but although it stayed relatively close and looked at me for a while, obviously used to humans, it then took off and that was that…

    These things come in across the patio and try to get in through the patio doors.

    They live on sap from oak trees and fruit trees.
    They must be after my apple crumble!

    It’ll be the custard for sure. Set a custard lure and you’ll trap me.

    A Wobbler lure attached contains homemade egg custard, top notch!
