How to find lost bird ?

Hello, a woman I met has lost her African Grey three weeks ago. There has been several sighting (unless the person mistook a different bird) but no capture.

As soon as the owner knew he was out of the house, it flew on top of a neighbors tree, and even though she called his name and many other known words, etc,.it would not come to her. It took off and that was it for the day.

So, if he's sighted again, just how do we capture him ?
(unless he rests on a low tree branch)

They've been together for 24 years now, so we must find him.

Thank you,
Kevin

I'm sorry to hear about the lost bird. I hope he will be found and safely returned to his family. Here's a few tips for you.

Re: How to find lost bird ?

Have you tried placing his cage outside with food and water. Does he have another parrot as a friend? A dog?

I'll look into the links and inform the owner as well.

Setting up the cage with food and water is a great idea, but we need to find out if he's staying around a particular area for it to work.
