    I know this sounds funny but maybe play a tape of your
    parakeets and or put a dummy parakeet in the cage you can get
    them from the petstores and prop the cage door open. Or if
    you can get someone to put a ladder next to the birdhouse and
    when you see him go in cover the hole and bring the cage down
    and either take inside and wait til he comes out or put the
    opening up next to the cage opening with no space between the
    cage and bird house. Its worth a try!!
