Hi Grace, I don’t know what that is and I don’t have one.
However, my husband builds bird nesting boxes & roosting boxes for the local birds and I’m wondering it he’s been taking shelter in one of them.

Re: Oh my goodness there’s a Budgie outside ...

Apparently known as Mpemba effect. (hot water freezing faster than cold water) I understood it was something about water molecules and atoms that move faster at higher temperatures, which somehow results in the water freezing faster. Hot water also freezes clearer. (my grandmother has always liked freezing hot water bottles for this fact alone)

I hope you see her again! Maybe look around for any lost posters or ads, and put some up of your own? In local groups, 911 parrot, etc. Maybe she's off eating at someone else's home? And maybe some people don't even realize that she's not a native bird, despite the fact they've never seen a bird like her before?

That’s what I thought, it was a molecule thing. Thx

No Jim, every time he even sees me in the window he bolts.
But, I did think about that approach. Thx

Re: Oh my goodness there’s a Budgie outside ...

They sell them in pet stores in the reptile section. The lizard i babysat had one. It has to be plugged in but it provides heat.

Re: Oh my goodness there’s a Budgie outside ...

I was introduced to my very first budgie like this! He flew down onto my deck at my holiday home, and he was so skinny. I lured him towards my house with sunflower seeds (it's all I had!), and then caught him by throwing a towel over him and handling him gently and bringing him inside. I didn't have any birds at the time, and I was in a small holiday town with no pet store to buy a cage or food. I made him a makeshift cage out of some metal baskets, and rushed to the supermarket to buy him some bird seed. All I could find was plain millet seed, since there was no pet shop in the town. I also made some DIY toys using what I could find at the stationary store and out of stuff I had at home. Despite searching for the owner, no-one came forward so I just took him home with me, that's where it all started!

As someone with an aviary, I have gotten quite good at capturing my untame budgies. Since it is so cold, if he/she comes back for the seed on the ground, my advice for this poor baby is to find a towel, slowly approach him/her and then lightly throw the towel over him/her, since there is no guarantee that he/she will come into the cage on his/her own. It is a bit risky unfortunately, but if you are careful you should be able to capture him/her. Pick up him/her gently to bring inside and into the cage you have.

Leaving the cage out and allowing him/her to come in is also a great idea - hopefully this will work so you don't have to worry about capturing him/her. Another suggestion might be to put a heat pad under the cage to keep it warm, just like the heat pads you use for hospital cages - not sure if you have one!

Good luck! I really hope you can help this baby.
