Marie, just ignore the Julie person. My husband and I have owned parrots
for 20+ years and had an amazon escape once and a conure twice. Luckily
each time we were able to immediately retrieve them. Our pet sitter also
had her cape parrot escape and we used our amazon to find him. One of
our tenants lost their amazon, but got him back soon afterwards by
getting a ladder and retrieving the bird from a nearby rooftop. So
accidents do happen and it happens more frequently than people want to
admit. It is a wakeup call to almost lose a bird and makes you much more
careful in the future. I am very happy for you to have gotten your
little guy back!
