Tips for Finding a Lost Parrot
Losing your parrot can be a devastating experience. Unlike a
dog or cat who may roam the (usually familiar) streets
wearing a collar with a tag, parrots often fly up and away to
hide in the safety of a tree's high branches. Often, they are
so scared and confused by their surroundings that they are
unable to find their way home, even if they wanted to. Here
is a few tips for getting your bird back.
Remember the "One Mile/One Month Rule": When looking for a
lost bird, remember that and during the first month
following "escape," a lost parrot usually stays within a one-
mile radius of where it was lost.
Familiar Surroundings: Even if you cannot see your bird, he
may be watching you. Your bird may be too scared to come down
and see you, so entice him. Put his cage outside, full of his
favorite junk-food, and leave the door open. If your bird has
a feathered pal, put him outside, too (in a locked cage).
Only attempt this if you are home and watching the cage(s)
carefully. This may entice him to come down. If you have a
dog/cat that your bird doesn't like, be sure to keep them far
away from the cage.
Make Some Noise: If there are noises or words that your bird
likes, walk the neighborhood making those sounds. Listen
carefully, your bird might talk back!
Let People Know: When your bird becomes hungry or lonely, she
may make contact with a stranger in desperation. This person
may well go looking for the bird's owner. Make posters
advertising your lost bird with a description and contact
information. Give these posters to neighbors, veterinarians
and pet stores as soon as possible. If there are bird
breeders in your area, let them know you lost your bird, too.
Also, place an advertisement in the Lost & Found section of
any newspapers in your area. Finally, stick posters up on
phone poles and in community centers. You may even go door-to-
door asking neighbors to keep an eye out for your bird. This
way, if someone has seen/found your bird, they can easily
find you, too.
Remember Your Animal Welfare Groups: Be sure to contact your
local animal control, Humane Society and any parrot rescue
groups in your area. Let them know you have lost your parrot
and give them a contact number where they can get a hold of
you if someone reports a found bird.
And Most Importantly: Be stubborn about finding your bird.
Parrots are very adaptable and can live feral in many parts
of the United States. Your best chance for getting your bird
back is if you are proactive!
