Karleigh Wendell recently put out a post on Facebook, trying to find the owner of a cute lost bird in her neighborhood. She says the bird just appeared in her driveway one day, on East Street in Cassville, and they have no idea were it came from.

According to Karleigh, the bird is very friendly and not afraid of people. She and her fiancé assume the bird is someone's lost pet because it responds to calls and will let them hold/pet it.

And also... when's the last time you've seen a neon green bird flying around?

What Even is It?

Based off my bird expertise, and the power of Google, the bird appears to be a Budgerigar. It's a small, long-tailed parrot or parakeet and considered one of the most common parrots kept as pets in the United States.

So good news, it's not some nuclear or mutated pigeon. But the bad news, we still don't know where the bird came from.

In her latest update, Karleigh says they took the bird to a local wildlife center to be taken care of. The bird was very malnourished and had a low body temp when they brought it in. The parrot is now on a heating blanket and slowly getting healthier every day.
