She's probably not going to want to sleep if you are constantly watching her. Put a cover over the cage to make it dark and help her feel secure and she should drift off.

Agreed. A watched budgie (almost) never sleeps. =P

I'm sorry your budgie flew away. I just wanted to add that you should make posters and hang them around town, post in local 'lost/found animals' Facebook groups. If possible you can also walk your neighbourhood playing budgie sounds on your phone. With a bit of luck someone will find your budgie and will be actively looking for you, his rightful owner.

I agree with the above.
Here’s a link regarding lost budgies that you might find helpful:

Don’t give up hope, someone may have taken him in and be searching for lost budgie reports.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

I would put his cage out on the deck or somewhere he can see it with the cage door open. If he sees it and is hungry or scared he might just go back in. Put the female in another cage in the meantime.
