One of the strangest animal encounters our family has experienced is the rescue of a stray parakeet. My mom was heading into work one day when she spotted a little blue thing hopping towards her. The starving parakeet probably flew away from someone's house because he was friendly enough (or hungry enough) to hop right up onto her finger. She kept him safe until she got a cage, and from that day forward we had a cute little budgie to sing for us. Unfortunately, he passed in just a couple of years. He was a sweet bird though, especially for being so small.
