Default My Kiwi has escaped

Hi, friends!

I'm currently in a situation of sorts here- one of my budgies, Kiwi, has escaped! I did everything I could think to do: I left water and food, called her, and brought her mate outside in their cage. Her mate, Paco, immediately started calling for her and she answered- it's been a few hours now, so she doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Only problem is: I have no idea exactly where she is, which tree she's in, or what to do if she does return (will she just fly off again?).

I know this is probably one of the best case scenarios for a bird that got loose, and I'm very thankful because I at least know she's alright. It's going to get dark soon and I'm worried about leaving her outside overnight. Please help!

It's very difficult to get a bird back because they do tend to fly away.
If you have a spare cage, you could set that up outside and hope that she might return to it. In the day light, take Paco back out in his cage to call her. I would keep trying with Paco outside. Perhaps try leaving him in the doorway so he can call her and she might come back and fly inside if you're incredibly lucky. Of course, you need to be with Paco to keep him safe while he's in his cage, but try and stay out of sight to encourage her to come back.

There's no easy answer to how to get your bird back in once it's escaped.

Welcome to talk budgies, sorry that such an unfortunate event has brought you here. I agree with the advice therm has given you. In addition, be prepared to pass out flyers in the surrounding areas so people can contact you if they see the bird. Posting on social media as well as notifying the area veterinary offices is a good idea also. We have had quite a few member's here get lost bird's back in the last few year's so keep up high hopes and a positive attitude. prayer's for your little bird to return safely...

Keep using Paco outside in his cage. If Kiwi is socialized
and bonded with you, he could fly down to the cage. The thing people worry is how far can they go, and where are they sleeping at night. Having vocal contact with a budgie friend is the best
attraction. If you lose contact, put up posters, contact local humane
societies and walk the neighborhood with caged Paco. Good luck.

I'm sorry to hear Kiwi escaped.

I see it's been a couple of days since you first posted.
Have you had any success in located Kiwi?

(BTW, I changed the title of your thread to something more appropriate)

Please be sure to update us on the progress you are making in your search for Kiwi.

Prayers and best wishes that you will soon be reunited.
