What kind is it? NEW
by: Anonymous

I live in rural Rockyview county Alberta. I have seen the same bird (i think) except I would describe peachy orange body with same black head and tail. I have never seen it before. In our late summer, it has been drinking the hummingbird feed. it is very shy and flyes of at the leas of interruptions.... i don't know what kind of bird it is but it is beautiful.

I can't find any kind of song bird that resembles your bird that should be around Lake michigan. A wild bird bird would not follow you home so it must be someones pet and possibly tropical. I would do my best to entice it into the house because it won't be able to protect itself outside from any kind of danger and may not know how to find food. I would also contact a Bird Store who should be able to ID it, they will know what to feed it but most definitely get water to it ASAP, also advertise a found bird.
