Budgie coming to feeder in Richmond Hill--how to catch it?

We have a lost budgie living in the evergreen tree in our front yard. However it's green with blue tail and yellow face. It's been here for two days, eating lots of wild bird food from our bird feeder. I'm not a bird person so I'm not sure how to catch the budgie so we can bring it inside. Any budgie experts who can advise me on how to catch this budgie?

Is that Richmond Hill ONT, or GA, walter01?

Catching budgies can be tricky, but it might still be acclimated to being in a cage. If you can find a bird cage and fit it out with food and water with the door open, the bird might actually be tempted inside. It's a long-shot, though--they get wild pretty quickly.

Is it at all tame or does it fly off as soon as it sees you?
