I apologize for the delay in responding, but with the holiday there are many bird experts taking needed time off. I just this moment saw your question

Help me understand a bit more: What kind of bird is this? Do you know if it's male or female?

I'm not sure what the problem is. He can't fly? Can't walk? Take your time and explain what's causing you concern.

Also, give me an idea of age; what he typically eats (please be specific) and what his environment is like

Thank you and rest assured I will be here for you both
