Take his cage to him & put a smaller cage up in the tree.
You may want to put a string on the door to pull the door
shut if he gets into the cage. Put his loved items in the
cages, food, toys, bed, what ever he likes best.
contact parrot 911 to see if you have one of there people
near you to help.

When My TAG got out, I located him on the 3rd day.
I stood at the base of the tree he was in calling & tapping
my shoulder with noone else around the area to distract or
scare him. after a bit of coaxing he flew to a nearby bush
and let me pick him up.
GOOD LUCK & KEEP TRYING
