Not sure


I found this small bird sitting in the middle of a parking spot. Olive green on the outer part and yellow belly.It allowed me to pick it up. It seemed in shock at the time but as soon as I got it home,I put it an extra bird cage I had and it just sat there. I don't know what it eats or if I should even keep it. I was a little worried because the temperature just dropped to the 50's and I think this was causing it to not move. I didn't want a cat or grackle to come and eat it. It has started to fly on the bottom of the cage and sing a little. I am located in South Texas (Corpus Christi)

I found that exact bird in a parking lot today near the fox river in green bay wisconsin. My comments don't vary from anyone elses. The sweet little thing. Is it someone's pet?

your bird is a migrant heading south
by: Anonymous

This bird is migrating south and got stuck. they live along stream valleys. I have seen groups of them migrating along ROck Creek park heading south and they get disoriented easily. I think it is a hooded warbler. Put it back in a south facing stream valley park for further migration

I found a dead bird exactly like yours in Washington DC in the fall. (migrating south I bet). I think it is a hooded warbler.

I found a dead bird exactly like yours next to a building at Rock Creek Park in Washington DC on September 19. I am trying to figure out what he/she is. Its quite sad.
