Sparrow size, has about half of it's feathers. Wings and tail. Has a yellowish band at tip of tail feathers. Dark in color with black eye mask. Will only eat fruit. Just learning to fly. Very friendly. Loves to sit on your finger and when I go to feed it jumps or flies onto the open cage door. When we found it we left it alone for 7 hours and watched for a parent and to make sure it was safe. No parent showed. We brought it in and have been feeding it fruit. I could tell that it had been eating fruit because the poo had fruit seeds in it. We did try wax worms and seed, it refused to eat anything but fruit. It is eating and learning to fly.
