Lost Moustache Parakeet in Los Angeles/Encino Area!!!

Sponsored Links
Hey guys, spread the word and keep your eyes open if you live or know anyone who lives in the greater Los Angeles, CA area, a woman who is a YouTube parrot vlogger that I talk to lost her very young Moustache Parakeet about a week ago. He got loose and took-off from her home in the Encino/Tarzana area about a week ago. He's just a baby and she is losing her mind with grief...and so is the rest of her flock, which is large, and apparently have become very bonded to him, especially one Cockatoo in-particular.

I've told her to post him as being lost on Parrot911, ParrotAlert, and her local Craigslist pages. She's done the local Craigslist pages, hopefully she'll see my message to her and post on the other sites, I don't think she's aware of them as of right now...I also told her to call every local Vet Office, Shelter, Rescue, and Pet/Bird Shop to let them know and give them her info, in-case someone brings him in...There aren't a lot of Moustache Parakeets, so hopefully he'll show-up soon...He is banded...

Re: Lost Moustache Parakeet in Los Angeles/Encino Area!!!

I’ve been watching her for a year or two and I feel so bad. As stated above she has a rescue cockatoo that was bonded very closely to him and she started plucking a lot worse than normal and isn’t eating. The story made it on the news yesterday, and to answer the above she has been posting on all those sites. Let’s hope the mustache parakeet named picasso comes back home to them.

Re: Lost Moustache Parakeet in Los Angeles/Encino Area!!!

Thanks Classy, I feel better knowing she finally posted on Parrot911, I had checked the site and saw nothing, and it being the best place to post a lost bird I was hoping she would get that done...I also told her to start calling all the local Vet Offices, Rescues, and also any local Pet Shops and Bird Shops, as it's not at all unusual for people who find a parrot to take them to their local Pet Shop because they don't know how to take care of them, don't have a cage, etc. So it's very important that all the local Pet and Bird Shops are aware that she lost her bird and have her personal info, so that they know who the bird belongs to if someone brings it in...I've heard of several shops who will hold the bird for a week, then they just put it out for sale...I've also heard of several people who have notified their local Pet and Bird shops that they have lost their bird, and then someone comes in asking about what food or what size cage is best for that particular species of parrot, and then they know that the person has found one outside and is just deciding to keep it...And with a Moustache Parakeet, being an uncommon pet parrot, if someone suddenly walks into a Vet Office with one or goes into a Pet Shop asking for a cage for one, that's going to send-up red-flags...

It's so sad, bad enough that she is devastated, and then her Cockatoo that is closely-bonded to him start plucking like crazy and totally stops eating...I heard her say that she was thinking about clipping all of her birds so that she doesn't have to worry about this happening to any others...that's the extreme stress talking, I hope, anyway...It was just a freak accident that could happen to anyone...

I'm just hoping that because it's such an uncommon species of parrot and you don't see many of them at all that someone will spot him and at least be able to tell her the general location he's in...The problem with the Los Angeles area is it is surrounded by deserts, mountains, and huge dry-lake beds on all sides, and with him being gone for a week already, he could be anywhere...Hopefully someone has found him already and they are trying to find his owner, I always worry that the largest obstacles in the way of a lost bird finding it's owner are unscrupulous people who don't care about the bird or the owner and only see dollar signs...

Yeah, Rocky (the macaws) was lost but they were able to find him within a day despite him being (at the time) not very human friendly (he's a rescue) this was a year or so ago I think though

And yeah.. I've been a bit iffy on her since she just keeps getting them but she seems to take good care of them so yeah.. just a bit hesitant and skeptical on her intentions.

Yes I hopev he is found too. She was the reason I started getting interested bin parrots and learned the proper care for them before i got Ollie. She even gave us some shout outs (Ollie and I) in some of her videos because she also has an Instagram with the hashtag #engagednotcahed that I post on with my birds and she reshares those posts.
Also, just so everyone knows...her cackatoo (Jersey) has always been a plucker and through the years has nearly plucked herself clean so it's not because of Picasso that she started plucking. There was even a YouTube video on how to make a shirt for your plucking birds. I just wanted the right information out there.

I don't think anyone implied that Picasso missing is the reason but it's definitely encouraged it. If you saw her earlier videos vs now Jersey has been doing a lot better with her picking problem and it's sad to hear it's worsened bc her friend is missing.

Re: Lost Moustache Parakeet in Los Angeles/Encino Area!!!

Right. I just didn't want people think she plucked her entire body because of this is all.


She said to share this video.
