I'm so very sorry to hear of your budgie's escape! He's beautiful and I can tell he is a very important part of your life.
I agree with Shane--it's important to be proactive in the community for the best possible chance of finding him. Contact all animal shelters and vets in the area, put up flyers, and use social media to get the word out. Hopefully soon, you will be reunited
Despite the sad reason for your joining, welcome to the forums!
Please keep us posted on how things go.

Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
So sorry to hear your budgie has escaped, and also that I'm not a bit nearer Bedford. I do recommend finding a good photo to use on posters put up all round your neighbourhood, in shops, post offices, vets, community centres etc. And online in as many places as you can think of. They can be, and are, found again and returned to owners, as we have seen here, so have hope and don't despair. You just need to tell as many people about him as you can.
