OMG!! I just went back and forth with someone who sent me an email with a few pictures of my Tony!! The man says he was at the gas station (he mentioned the exit and the road - it's close to our house actually) and Tony apparently flew to his car and went inside to him. The man says that he looked like he was "looking for someone to help him" lol!
He says he didn't know what to do but went into the store and bought him some chips to eat. (Tony loves chips, lol). Then he drove home with him.
I suppose he saw my ad and decided to check with me if that is my bird.
We talked to the man on the phone and he seemed genuine. (the pictures of Tony he sent me look like Tony for sure). So, we are meeting him tomorrow at his work, he is going to bring Tony in with him (since he lives about an hour away from us and it's too late to drive now).
I am soooo excited!! I cannot believe my little rascal is well and will be home tomorrow!!
Please keep your fingers crossed that everything goes ok and my Tony comes home tomorrow.

THAT IS AWESOME news! I'm just smiling uncontrollably right now ;) I'm so, so happy you found (maybe, probably, hopefully?) Tony, and that sounds like him for sure, the scamp :giggle:
Glad the man who found him seemed nice, it's hilarious he bought him chips :laughing:
I bet Tony might want to have these escapades so he can find a nice person to buy him chips :eek: :nono:
Hopefully tomorrow when you see them he wipes the chip crumbs off his feathers!
Maybe if you give him chips he won't fly away?
:laughing: :laughing:
I'm so sorry I just can't get over the chips ;)

Hope it is him, I'm so happy for you and I will be waiting anxiously for news!

Tony is home!!!
Everything went very well, we met the man at the parking lot of his work, he is super nice and very kind. I think we are very lucky that Tony found him at that gas station.
I prepared a little monetary reward for the man and was trying to tell him how much this meant to us, but he would not take the money. He said he only wanted a family picture for his facebook page, lol!
I felt so blessed to come across such a nice person!!
Tony was frantic when he saw us, and we quickly transferred him from the doggy crate to his small travel cage (inside my car, or course - not taking a chance for his escape this time). He calmed down when we started driving, I put the cage on my lap and he was happy with that.
When we came home, I let him into the big cage and as soon as Candy and him heard each other, they started flock calling. It was so nice to hear that. He pigged out on some millet and is now taking a nap!
It sounds like Tony spent the first night out on a tree and then the second day flew closer to the gas station. What is amazing, the man said that he never really stops at this particular gas station, but this time, he was on his phone with his mom and forgot all about gas until he came to our exit. Then stopped for gas and the whole thing with Tony happened.
Sometimes, God has his ways...
