Playground Parakeet

A parakeet showed up on the playground recently at the school where I teach. As can be imagined, it caused quite a flutter of excitement. It had had its wings clipped so it did not fly very well and was almost tame enough for the kids to touch before--- it flew-hopped out of range.

It turned out to be the pet of one of our students and had been missing for a few days. He managed to catch it and a volunteer mom helped him get it to my room where I had a butterfly tank that they borrowed until his mom could come and take the bird home.

The rescuers and the rescued.
