    Hello~ I live in NE Arkansas. A beautiful parrot-like bird
    has either escaped or has been let go, and has found its way
    to my back yard bird feeder. It won't let me near it, and
    I'm concerned it won't survive the winter. :( Also, can
    anyone help me identify it?
    It is mostly green with some yellow. It has a dark brown
    head, bright white rings around the eyes, bright red beak,
    and I'd say it's about the size of a wild bird called a
    rose-breasted grosbeak. I thought it might be a hanging
    parrot because it was hanging upside down from a power line
    above before flying down to the ground to feed. I've
    searched the internet with no luck of an I.D.
    Thanks in advance~
