Bay Police Blotter: Nomadic Parakeet Finds Sanctuary in Bradley Park

The budgie parakeet (the ‘Budgerigar’ or simply the ‘Parakeet’) is the most popular pet parrot in the world, according to the website ‘Feather Me.’ They were discovered by Europeans in Australia back in the mid-1800s and their fame spread fast!

Wild budgies are extremely nomadic and live in flocks which can contain over 100 strong if food is plentiful.bay police logo 130121011959_bay-village-police-300x168

Following its instincts, a parakeet surprised a visitor at Bradley Park on Aug. 20. A caller reported to Bay Police at 8:41 p.m. that he was at the park when a green and yellow parakeet landed on his shoulder. The bird had a tag on its leg. Officers investigated and eventually it was returned to its owner in Avon Lake.
