Darlene, your birds are beautiful! I love birds, and feed them every day. We have a nature preserve behind our house, with a creek beyond that, so we get a huge variety of birds. Everything from the tiniest hummingbirds, chickadees and tufted titmouse to the biggest pileated woodpeckers you've ever seen! Imagine our surprise when this green and yellow and blue fellow started showing up regularly at my feeder! He must enjoy my seed (I always buy the pricey stuff that's not filled with millet and has lots of oilers). He will let me come out on the deck and talk to him, but he won't come to me. I spoke to my vet, and she also said that he won't survive the winter. I may have to buy a cage, rig it up with parakeet food and water, leave the cage door open, and just see if he'll make himself at home. We've grown rather fond of the little guy!
