    It looks like a Ring Neck. I can't tell from the picture how big it is, but Ring Necks are small, with an orange ring around their neck and have an orange belly. They are harmless.

    Thanks guys... just goes to show how good the UMASS extension website is, didn't even have Ring Neck listed, but yes, it had an orange belly. I was worried its mother was gonna sniff it out and come looking for me :)

    I agree with Bob...looks like a ringneck to me, too. Harmless.

    that is to big to be a ring neck they only get 8-10 inches tops and their ring is never that big.
