Splendid bird!

During all my ringing years, I only ever caught one of these birds. I had put up a mistnet to try to capture an escaped budgerigar belonging to a sweet old lady in the village. When I returned to the net fifteen minutes later, the only bird in the net was the species you can see here being handled by a sweet young lady.
As you can gather, when it comes to the ladies, I am not in the least ageist.
