I lost my sweet boy on May 20 at 8:30 am in Universal City, Texas. I had a radio on and he broke his usual routine and flew up behind me as I was opening the back door and landed right on my shoulder and then just took off. I usually can hear him flying, but with the radio on I couldn't. I did not visually see him again until 1:00 pm, he was in a tree in the neighbors yard behind us. I had his cage out with all his favorite toys and I sat out there trying to coax him down. Then he just disappeared, I had binoculars and scanned the tree but he was gone. I walked up and down all of over our neighborhood playing budgie sounds from my cell phone. Unfortunately our neighborhood consists of thousands of homes and millions of trees. That night I heard an owl in our tree, which I have never heard the whole nine years I've lived here.
I am completely heartbroken, he and I did everything together. Last night I was scanning Craigslist and saw a found parakeet ad, I freaked out thinking it was him but it was a baby white female found. I did put lost flyers up at both vet offices, and at our local pet store, and a Craigslist ad.
Oh my gosh!!! Some lady called me a few minutes ago and said a woman posted on the Nextdoor website that she has had a blue Parakeet coming to her feeder! She saw my flyer and contacted the woman on Nextdoor and told her I had lost my Parakeet. The neighborhood is about 3-4 miles away. I emailed the woman and asked her if I could bring his cage and toys over. I gave her my phone number, but nothing yet. Please pray for me, thank you for the encouragement to keep the faith! I'll let you know what happens.
It was a very long day waiting for the woman to respond to me. She got back with me about 8:40 tonight, she saw my pictures I had emailed to her, and she said it was definitely him. So it looks like another long day tomorrow waiting. The woman has a Dr.s appt. at 10 am and then she has a lunch appt., so she said I can come over at 2:00 pm. She said he has been landing on the ground under the bird feeder to feed.
Do y'all have any advice for when I go over to try and get him? I'm bringing his cage, playground, and his favorite magnified mirror that he loves to look at himself with. Thank you
