ACCORDING TO MY BOOK FOR COLOR MARKINGS
IT LOOKS LIKE A MISSISSIPPI KITE
IT SAYS THAT THEY ARE 14 1/2"BIG
SO IF THAT'S ABOUT THE SIZE YOU SAW
CHECK IT OUT IN BOOKS OR INTERNET, GOOD LUCK
PLEASE RE-POST IT WHEN YOU FIND OUT FOR SURE
SO I CAN KNOW ALSO!!!

Looks like a parakeet (especially since it is so friendly with your girls)
Just a bird lover
