What is a black bird with a brown head called?


I don't know what part of the country you're in, but in the plains, usually a black bird with a brown head is a Cowbird. It has a call that calls dripping water to mind. They are parasitic parents, in that the female lays her eggs in other birds' nests, and the young are raised by foster parents.

Egg Bound Parakeet


You want to keep her warm and in a very humid environment; we get a water soaked hot towel, put it in a clean bucket put the bird on top of the towel and then cover the bucket with another towel. while she is resting in the bucket go to the kitchen and get some apple sauce (hope you have some) get some olive oil or, mineral oil even, Vaseline will do.........heat you towel up again and let her sit another 5 minutes. Now get a q-tip and saturate it with your lube; you may want a helper for the next step.....gently restrain the bird in your hand abdomen down and out; have your helper feel between the pelvis bone to see if the egg is broken or not and where it is. Now gently use your q-tip with ky jelly or whatever on the tip and GENTLY lubricate the birds vent. Now gently use your middle finger and help the egg out by pushing gently in and down on the outside of her abdomen. Small movements is the key and did I mention be gentle. You are just massaging the egg out don't push too hard or you will hurt the bird and break the egg.........if the egg breaks just keep massaging her abdomen until it looks like everything is out. if you have a small syringe and a surgical tube you can evacuate the abdomen with sterile water.
Give the bird some applesauce if you know how; it will help her get cleaned out. Make sure she stays warm and has plenty of water. Keep calcium in her cage to help harden the next set of eggs. Good luck.

First I would discuss a vet, just to make sure it is an egg bound. You should be aware that Females cockatiels are known for becoming egg bound. To avoid this, make sure that your birds has adequate amounts of calcium in their diet.

Hello my name is molly, i have a female quaker parrot named murial. she has been acting very aggersive ever since i have come home today . she has not been alone today but is vey angery. she is guarding...


Hi Molly,

FixYa is actually more of a product-support site than a pet-support site. To receive the most informed answers about Murial, you should probably seek out a site more geared towards birds.

That said, I have owned many parrots, and what Murial is doing definitely sounds like she's getting ready to lay eggs. Even if you don't have a male, Murial could very well lay unfertilized eggs. When female birds get ready to lay, they seek out a safe spot and start behaving very aggressively towards anyone who disturbs them. If she continues behaving this way and does not lay eggs, definitely seek help and look out for symptoms of egg binding.

If she does lay eggs, this behavior will continue. Eventually, she should abandon the unhatched eggs and return to normal behavior. If she doesn't, you will have to remove them to try and break the behavior (and get rid of a potentially stinky problem). She may lay again. Worst comes to worst, you can purchase fake eggs to replace the real ones with (sold online and at some bird stores).

For now, just make sure she has food and water, and isn't stressed out. It's also normal for birds in this state to have unusually large droppings (the result of holding them in for longer while sitting on the eggs or in their nest area). You may want to indulge her with some nesting material (or just a newspaper to shred).

Best of luck!
