Suet Bird Feeder
Suet Bird Feeder
A dull green bird with large red spots on his face, neck, back and tail, was in my suet feeder?
This bird may be 6.9 inches long dullish green throughout, with large red spots on the face, throat, and some in the back, etc. I do not really think this bird is wild because they do not seem to know how eat the fat ... looked more like a pet bird escape. I've never seen one like that before, and I can not find photos online that match your description. His call was a bit of a chat. Can anyone help me identify if it was wild or domestic? Oops - I live in lower Michigan. It also has a short tail and a short and wide "peak" that little can go up and down on his head. Definitely not a parrot, it is not a hookbill all - the beak is longer and thinner.
I did a brief search, and most birds are mostly green with red are either hummingbirds and parrots. Since there is obviously a hummingbird, there is good probability that it is a parrot. All parrots are hookbills. They have a distinctive beak shape. Since its not native parrots in Michigan, it is probably safe to assume that this is an animal escaped. Many parrots are mostly green with red. Your description sounds familiar ... Does the bird has a long tail or short tail? If I were you, I would see through Petfinders lost and found, and the category of domestic animals of Craigslist, and to see if someone in your area has lost a similar bird. If the bird is still in your area, I would leave out the sunflower seeds, and then try to catch the bird ... or at least have an idea. And if a pet lost, you might want to put a couple of ads yourself ... someone may be looking for the bird. *** I saw your photo editing. A little too blurry to see clearly beak, feet or tail, which would be really useful. If the beak is long and light in color, it looks like a bearded. If so, has no place in Michigan.
