Default URGENT budgie has escaped!!!

hello all, i have a dilemma on my hands.
i'm not sure were to post this, please direct me to another spot if necessary.
my mum was changing my budgie Jojo's water and left the cage door open, and he has flown away.
This has happened once before quite a few years ago and he came back after a few days, buts its getting colder and now i have a cat who loves catching birds. I've put the cat inside, and placed Jojo's cage in a more visible spot outside with millet pegged to the door but does anyone have any ideas as to how to get him back asap?
he is not tamed but is used to having humans around, but will not come when called or anything like that.
I've had him for almost 6 years and really don't want to lose him, any tips are greatly appreciated.
thanks, Lena

Go outside and call for him, even if he won't come when called he may recognize your voice. Play budgie sounds as loud as possible to try to attract him to the area and put his cage in a visible area.

Call the local animal shelter or vet to let them know that you are missing a budgie in case someone finds him before you do.

As a point of interest, it's important to never open any part of the cage while there are doors and windows open as these things can happen so fast.

Put up advertisements and post on social media regarding this. I truly hope you get him back!

thank you for your reply, he is actually in his cage outside for most of the day and so obviously when his cage was left open after a while he flew away. have been calling him all afternoon and he has been chirping back, its getting dark now so i will go out again and call for a bit, i hope he returns soon

Are you able to see where he is chirping from?

I'm very sorry to hear JoJo has escaped.
It is extremely important that you be as proactive in trying to locate him as possible!

Good luck in finding JoJo - please let us know how things go. I'm praying he'll be found and returned to you.

If he's spent a lot of time outside in his cage, there's optimism that he visualizes the area as "home" and since many birds have "good homing instinct", it's an advantage. Still with living in the "wild" there are also dangers. Keep the cat inside, keep playing budgie sounds and check the cage often. Good luck, you're in many people's prayers. Keep us posted.

my mum said she called for him all day while i was at school, i was hoping he would return during the day to his cage, we haven't moved it from where its placed outside every day in hopes he will return to the area he recognized.
mum says she didn't see or hear him chirping at all today, but last night Jojo was in the tree the magpies roost in for the night, I heard him doing the distressed screech noise and fear that the magpies scared him out of the tree/attacked him.
we live in a remote area so no neighbors will have seen him.
i am praying he will return in a few days, thank you all for your support <3

not sure if people are still interested in this but Jojo did not return. I like to believe everything happens for a reason, and i hope that if he has passed out in the wild, it was quick and painless.

I'm very sorry to hear JoJo was not found.

For all other members on the forum who read this thread, please let this be a lesson in the importance of knowing where your budgies are at all times before any doors or windows in your homes are opened. It only takes a moment of having inattention for a budgie to escape.

Blessings
