|Escaped Bird - Now What?|
Start searching as soon as you realize your bird is lost. A scared bird can travel several blocks before calming down and looking for a roost and an immediate search is your best bet to locate your pet. Most birds are terrified upon escape and go to the most immediate tall tree and hide there for a couple of days, so look closely. A terrified bird may not recognize your voice, but call their name loudly anyway, your voice may help calm them down and allow them to respond to you.
Walk around the neighborhood. Call his/her name, whistle his/her call, talk as you would whenever he/she is around. The sound of your voice or whistle can attract your lost bird. Offer a reward (the amount is incidential) for the safe return of your lost bird.
Please call (925)686-2350 if you have any information, or happen to be looking for the owner of a bird that may have adopted you.
Cockatiels may travel hundreds of miles from their home over several weeks/months as they start foraging for food and safety in a flock. NEVER give up hope. Some birds have been recovered months, even years, after their loss, hundreds of miles from their homes. Not a common occurence, but it does happen. Keep looking, keep your faith and miracles do happen.
