Beautiful! Great pictures! He/she seems to be planning to take swim? :)

What a cutie, albeit a tad suspicious. Perhaps he or she is wondering what lies beneath the grass skirt?

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

What a pretty bird. Great pictures!
Hope you are doing well, Michael too!
Blessings,
Cindy

Beautiful photos Ms A! The best thing here is that he genuinely doesn't seem to have a concern in the world, he doesn't even look like he's bothered about the presence of a photographer, just awesome.

Has me humming the song from Sesame Street ... "one of these things just doesn't belong here ..."

Awesome Mohawk.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Cool! I don't know my birds but that doesn't look like your normal backyard variety where I come from.

TexWisGirl said...

oh my gosh! so cute! i hope he will be okay in the wild!

mama .bonnie said...

He's a cutie but isn't he someone's pet? Though when I was in the Florida keys, a whole flock of wild parrots flew by. Was told that at one time, one (I think it would have had to been two)of them was someone's pet.

Nicole Thomas said...

At least the visitor is pretty handsome!!

Sally said...

How fun! I never have visitors like that. And, goodness you have patience!

Always a happy day when I see you post!

Karen said...

Love the one where he's gazing down into the pool... contemplating a dip or a sip? ... someone most be missing a cockatiel.

George said...

These are wonderful photos of your backyard visitor. I especially like the second photo where he is cocking his head as if to ask what you're doing.

Nellie said...

Gorgeous bird - and great photos!

Take care!

Betsy Adams said...

Wow---he is gorgeous. Bet you were surprised to see one in your yard... Wonder if he is someone's pet---that has escaped... Hope he can make it in the 'wild'....

Hugs,
Betsy

Deborah said...

There is never anything interesting in my yard. Just the random rabbit.

Lovely shots!

NCmountainwoman said...

What a surprise! Gorgeous photographs of this lovely bird.

Gigi said...

What a beautiful bird! But I have to know, is he someone's pet?

Help! Mama Remote... said...

He belongs in a cage. LOL Beautiful bird.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Uh oh, do you think it's an escapee from somewhere? What a cutie pie!

chana meddin said...

Extraordinary and whimsical, Ms.A, are you able to feed and capture him? He wears a band, obviously someone has lost their pet although he seems happy as Pie to be free to hang with YOU! Hope if you are able to find his owner he can return home safely. Your photograps...perhaps my favorites EVER?! YOWZA, you NAILED ALL THAT PERSONALITY IN EVERY IMAGE :) STUNNING!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

So that's where my cockatiel from 1995 went to -- tell him hello for me. :)

Katherines Corner said...

Ms. A, is that a wild bird?????? Just in your backyard? He's incredible.

Linda said...

My goodness! What a gorgeous creature!

troutbirder said...

I haven't seen that one lately around here. Err especially in winter conditions...:)

Momma Fargo said...

Pretty bird~!

Barbara Shallue said...

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad you spotted him. Is he still hanging around?

pembrokeshire lass said...

How fascinating and what a wonderful bird. He doesn't seem at all fearful, does he? It seems really strange seeing these birds in the wild....rather like the time I saw a humming bird when we were having a hop in LA! joan

Dan said...

Ti si neumna.

SweetMarie said...

He's beautiful! Someone must be looking for him! Poor thing! Maybe he'll visit you often. :)

SweetMarie said...

lotta joy said...

I had to look at each photo and go "awwwwwwwwww", then follow up by saying: "she has one helluva camera".

Grandma's Place said...

Vicki Lane said...

Great captures! (I hope the bird got back where he belongs.)

Katie said...

i don't know who would freak out more, me or the dog! what a sight to look out and see this guy! excellent shots!

Pat Tillett said...

Great shots of a real beauty!
I see he has a band on. Do you have any idea who might own him? Can you catch him?
