Cats Brought In This Beauty Alive. Please Identify

by Monstertelly
(Los Angeles)

I caught it in a shoebox and it doesn't look like the kind of bird that usually is in our backyard. It looks more like a pet and before I let it out again I want to make sure someone from the neighborhood isn't losing a loved one. It is white all over the body and breast with blue and black markings on it's back and a portion of the wings. It has a curved beak as well. I am in no way an ornithologist and have no idea about species so any word on whether or not I should let this one out in the backyard would be appreciated.

I think it's a budgerigar and it's definitely an escaped pet - they are native to Australia. It won't survive if you let it go.

It's a parakeet. It probably escaped from its home. Check your local 'lost & found' in the newspaper or online like craigslist and see it someone is looking for him.
