I mistook parakeet for a furry ball!

I mistook parakeet for a furry ball!

Sir, — I thought your readers would like to see this lovely, fluffy ball.

First of all, I thought someone had thrown a yellow fluffy ball into our bird feeder tree, only to realise that when it moved, it was not a ball but a parakeet!

Never before have we seen them on our feeders. We have had them on an old apple tree at the end of the garden and l have tried to photograph them when they fly to the tops of the fir trees but, sadly, they are too far away for a good photo.

Do you think this lovely bird will now tell its little friends? — Yours faithfully,

Sheila Ferris
