Well, it looks like a common budgie parakeet, budgerigar. Yellow and white variation.

With the coloration varieties where there are horizontal black stripes over the nose, you can tell if they're really young if their stripes go all the way to the nose. As they age, the stripes recede up the forehead and then disappear.

This one appears to have never had those stripes, so who knows.

Typically, the nose bridge is an indicator of gender. Blue ones indicate males, pink or brown ones are females. But with a very young one the color isn't always an indicator - this one could still turn blue.

It does have a band - so you could google the band number and color and figure out more information.

Did you find this bird? Otherwise, could you just ask the source where you bought it?

Just because a bird has a leg band does not guarantee that there will be any identifying information stored on the internet. I raised parrots for over 30 years and banded my own baby birds. We never stored any information online, the band only identified the breeder and had a unique # associated with the bird.

They didn't know either! They just listed "fancy parakeet"

This one is a STRONG flyer, and very affectionate. He or she tries to nurse off my finger and is very quiet and loving.. and I suspect young?

Want to keep him or her happy, that's why he or she is flying.

I think that this type of budgie would be called a creamino (basically, pale, light-yellow feathers with red eyes).
