This is Mozart, so called because J was playing Mozart on the piano when he dropped in on us.
He was not able to fly very high but managed to waddle over into our yard this afternoon(after the barking guard dog was restrained with dog treats) and he quickly made friends with the boys.
Mozart really likes blue thongs and eating seeds from hands.
He followed us around, so we figured he was not going to go back to where he came from (and may get harassed by the noisy guard dog again if he did) so we put him in a cosy box until the wildlife officer arrived.
The boys decided he was a cockatiel, which are not local to this area, so this bird must be a pet gone awol.
We enjoyed our visitor today...who will it be next?
