Hahahaha, Amazon in stealth mode! Baxter is fully flighted, but rarely flies. Periodically I find her walking the floor, looking for me. Never hear a thing until she's right next to me. They are foolish sometimes :-)

Re: The lost bird..

OMG I was laughing so hard. I knew he couldn't really be lost or you would be hysterical!

When I had my OWA Rocky and my BFA Sam in a small apartment in Brooklyn years ago, we had a small earthquake in the middle of the night. I woke up and went into the living room and there were no birds anywhere. I ran around looking for them, when I heard some peeps. There they were on the window sill. However, they had both gotten through the blinds and curtains to get there. To this day, I still don't know how they got through mini blinds! LOL

They get in some really weird places when sufficiently frightened. Years ago my moms GCA got spooked by something, took off (he wasn’t the world best flier) and when she went to find him, he was gone. It took her some time to locate him. He was stuck behind the dryer, in the dark, covered in dust and too terrified to move. Poor old guy.

Re: The lost bird..

Oh my goodness, my heart skipped a beat when I read this post! Thank God Amy is okay. I also have 2 GCC. My husband had his leg amputated in March so doesn't move really fast. And, I have let all 3 monsters' wings grow out, although SassyByrd is taking FOREVER for some reason. Anyhow, JoJoByrd flew out the door 2 weeks ago, yep right outside. She first flew into a small tree by the side of the house. They were not trained to fly to us or even step up, although they are out all day perched on my body or computer monitor. So the first attempted snatch resulted in most of her tail missing. Then she made her way to a neighbors tree. I approached her slowly with a bowl of sunflower seeds and managed to snatch her after about 15 minutes. She bit the crap out of me the whole way back to the house resulting in very deep hand wounds and bruising. You can bet for the last two weeks we have been working on "come" and "step up". They will now fly directly to a stick or my arm and are still learning step up! I cried the entire time she was out!

Re: The lost bird..

Congratulations Jim! Now that everyone has their heart back down to a near rested state and a smile on our faces, as knowledge that Amy was okay comforts.

Amazon disappearing act is far to common in our home. No one gets nuts until the vast number of his stuff hiding places are checked, followed by checking under all the chairs all while contact calling him. Thank goodness that he enjoys responding to contact calls.
Way too go Amy! Nothing like an Amazon to verify if everyone's hearts are functioning!

Gave us a real scare. As I was reading those first few lines I felt the way I would if a cop had just thrown the blue lights on behind me! DANG!
