Our New Family Member

Two weeks ago, a neighbor came to our door to ask if we knew of anyone who had lost a parakeet. We assumed that the bird belonged to another neighbor (but it turned out that he actually owns parrots). Emily eagerly volunteered to catch the bird. So, the next thing I knew we had a parakeet (in a dog crate, eating wild bird food)! We put up signs around the neighborhood, but were unsuccessful in finding its owner. I wasn’t in the market for another pet, but Emily has become attached, so apparently the bird is here to stay.

Surprisingly, Katie—our animal hater—thought it was cute and actually held it!

She (the bird) is a cute little thing and very friendly. She rides around the house on Emily’s shoulder. She is still nameless, though.  Any suggestions?
