A Bright New Visitor

Despite two weeks of heavy rains and thunder storms this bright green-lime Australian parakeet (melopsittacus undulatus) surprised and pleased us with its daily visit. 

According to the experts, the visitor is a male because its cere is blue

Perhaps the parakeet escaped from a cage nearby and found food here at our feeders and shelter in one of the trees close by. Also, our 'regulars' at the feeders such as the local Mexican Finches (carpodaccus mexicanii), black birds, Inca doves, sparrows and hummingbirds did not seem to mind its presence.

But, sadly, this bright little fellow has been absent for three days now.
