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

Sponsored Links
OMG- there’s a Budgie outside on my Hot Tub & it dropped down to 21°F last night. I’m going to try and catch him. Oh my, it is so cold out there right now. How is this poor thing able to survive? As soon as I saw him I put out some conure food. He must be starving.
I’ll put Levi’s visiting cage out and hope he goes in it. If he does than I’ll keep him separate from Levi, warm him up and than what? Take him to my Vet or the local bird shop. He does have a band, maybe I could find his owner?
Advice Please. POOR LITTLE GUY.

Here’s a video-

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

Awww, poor little guy! Putting the visiting cage outside is a good idea, with some food and water in it. Hopefully you can catch him!
If you can, you could take him to your vet, and there are a lot of FB groups for lost birds that he may be posted on.

This thread has a lot of good tips for people who have lost their birds, but some of the ideas could also be used to perhaps help find an owner:

Thank you for feeding him and trying to bring him in, you are wonderful

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

You might need to string the cage up like a trap so you can easily close the door once she goes inside the cage and she wont escape once you go out to bring her back in.

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

Okay thank you great ideas.
I took out most of Levi’s favorite toys & his swing and left a couple of things in there. I put more food in the bowl & hot water b/c it’ll freeze quickly.
Fingers Crossed he’ll go for the cage. Not so sure now that he’s had a taste of freedom. ? It warmed up to 27° now, he must be freezing.

Hopefully she see's the cage as a place of comfort and will go in.

If the only food is in the cage, that might prompt her to go in the cage that much more. (also try hanging millet inside the cage!)



Also, weird fact, hot water freezes faster than cold water does!

That’s funny that you say that. I used to think that. And my husband the engineer absolutely rejects that premise. I will show him your message.
I’m not sure why I thought that. If my dad said it or I learned it in Chemistry? But he vehemently rebukes it.

I agree about the food. I don’t have hanging millet. I bought it once for Levi & he never ate it. I gave it to my wild neighborhood birds.

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

Okay, I haven’t seen him since I put the cage out. However, there’s a Junco perches on it and a Tufted Titmouse keeps going inside perching and eating the food. Typical Right.....

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

If this is a bad ideal i apologize in advance but could you use a reptile rock or other heater to provide some warmth in the cage.
