Re: Lost GCC ! Need advice

I'm so sorry to hear this! Unfortunately clipped birds are still quite capable of sustained flight if there is sufficient wind to get lift or if they are frightened enough. Have you listed him on 911ParrotAlert yet? Here's the link if you need it....

Here's another link to the ParrotAlert page regarding their search and retrieve strategies that you may also find helpful...

And a link to our own "Bring Them Home" page which may give you some more ideas...

Bring Them Home! Tips On Locating A Lost Bird

You can also make up paper flyers and do an old fashioned letter box drop in your neighbourhood, about 25 years ago I got an IRN back the same day using this method. Alert every vet clinic anywhere near you, avian specialist or not, your GCC may find a friendly shoulder to land on and they may hand him in to a clinic.

Best of luck to you, and I hope you get your baby back soon!
