Are You Missing Your Pet Parakeet? One Was Spotted In The City Of Rome
Are you missing your blue pet parakeet? This poor bird was spotted by Griffis Airport in Rome.
According to a Facebook post from Jimmy James on the People and Places Of Rome Facebook Group, this bird was spotted next to Wydam Hotel, right next to RFA.
Ken Haugen commented that he has them as pets, and they don't fly in the wild here in Central New York. The bird probably broke out because Parakeets are extremely curious animals:
It's a parakeet .... it is a pet! Or used to be... escaped.. or set free...They are breed for being someone's pet.... never seen in the wild... I have had several.... Will actually starve.... doesn't know how to find food....And if approached.. cautiously.. will jump to your finger.. but have a cage ready"
A parakeet is one of many small to medium-sized species of parrots. Parakeets are indigenous to Australia, so not really native to Central New York.
In Australia they live in the outback, where they like to nest in hollow trees rather than creating their own nests."
However, due to people releasing them to the wild, there are some issues in the United Kingdom, and Spain, of the birds flying wild.
If this bird belongs to you, once again it was last spotted in Rome right next to the Rome Free Academy High School.
Someone’s pet for sure they can’t take the outside like that by themselves."
