This is a particular color breed of parakeet, called a Pied I believe. If you can, you might set out a cage with food and water as see if it will climb in the cage. Or if it is very tame, then it might come to you to feed out of your hand. Once they are in the wild for a time, they become very easily frightened making them harder to catch.
