Escaped Indian Ring Neck parrot abandoned by owners advice needed

Hi every one I posted a little while ago to try and get help in identify a green parrot that we discovered in trees near our house and it kept flying in to a neighbours garden to feed. It turned out that it was a Indian Ring Neck Parrot and its name is Chester.

I found owners they said they were on holiday staying in there camper van and Chester escaped from cage. They tried for a day to catch him. They gave up and went home. They came back once or twice more to try and catch him but gave up and have now abandoned him.

He is still here and still alive but is starting to cause a nuisance. He sits in tree out side our window and squaks half the night. Last night he started sqauking at 3am. He is so loud. He is keeping me and my children awake at night, he is also keeping my neighbours awake.
I can't put up with not being able to sleep, it's affecting my children, they are so tired during the day now as they are struggling to sleep at night. It's effecting there school work.

Neighbours are getting fed up too.

I have tried to catch him but he won't let any one near him. I've tried to leave a cage out with his favorot food, but he is not interested, there is too much other food around like berries on trees, seed on feeders in other near by gardens etc.

Is there any thing I can do. Is there any organizational I could report it to who has experts who could come and try and catch him. Its not just the noise, I'm concerned about his well being as well and how long he will survive once winter sets in. I'm in North of England Cumbria

Any advice much appreciated

Thanks in advance

Total newb here, but I have raised racing homers for 20 years, and I had a thought. What if you put another caged parrot out in your garden? He may be attracted to it. Then maybe you could get him with a long-handled net, like the kind they sell in fisherman's shops.

I assume you live somewhere in the U.K? Can you locate any local bird enthusiast clubs for ideas? Or perhaps the RSPCA? Hope he can be humanely captured and adopted or sent to a sanctuary.

Re: Escaped Indian Ring Neck parrot abandoned by owners advice needed

your best bet is to give firs "The Parrot Society" a call and ask them. They may suggest themselves but after that the RSPCA are probably going to be the best choice in actually getting the ringneck down

Re: Escaped Indian Ring Neck parrot abandoned by owners advice needed

That's a tough one...They are hardy birds and may be able to survive the snowy winter (as Quaker Parrots can), but I understand the issue that you're having with the noise, as they are very loud birds, or can be when they want to be. If he's a captive-bred parrot, as he apparently was, then he's probably scared, cold, lonely, etc. and is not used to being outside and having to fend for himself, and also to fight off predators such as cats, which are probably more of a threat to him than anything else right now.

Sad that his family members have just totally abandoned him, even though they know that he's still there and alive, and out in the wild having to fend for himself for the first time...And irresponsible as well. They should be held accountable for his well-being and any issues he's causing...If he was a dog that had gotten loose and run away, and they just decided they didn't care and left him to run loose in a neighborhood, you can be sure that the authorities would do something about it, but when it's "just a bird", it's like it's perfectly okay for their legal owners to just dump them outside and leave them to die...

****You said that you've already put a "cage" outside with food/treats in it...Just an idea, but it may very well work if you're willing to make a phone call to his owners. Parrots are extremely territorial about their cages/stands etc., that's their "territory" and their "safe space" in their home, even in a great home with people that they love and are bonded closely with, even the most snuggly, cuddly, loving, bonded parrot will still occasionally nip/bite their owner when they reach their hands into their cage to simply change their food/water...

***So, that being said, is it possible for you to call his owners and ask them if they could bring his actual cage from their home up, just as it was when he was living in it,
toys, food dishes and all, and put it out with whatever his usual food/treats that he used to eat are for him to see?
If you just put any old cage outside with food/treats inside it, it's not going to peak his interest at all, especially when there is already an abundance of natural food sources outside...HOWEVER, if he sees his own cage that he used to live in, that is his "territory" with his toys, dishes, etc. inside it, and the regular diet/treats that he used to eat every day inside of it, he will no-doubt immediately recognize it as his, and would most-likely fly right down to it...

Definitely worth a try since you're tried everything else...Parrots have the intelligence of a 3-4 year-old human child, and also possess the same emotional connections to people, places, and things that we do. And IRN's are also one of the most territorial of parrot species, along with Quaker Parrots, so even though he's up in a tree right now, if he sees his territory, his "safe place", his property, he's likely to go right to it...

Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I'm glad you're here, and I'm glad you have such a huge heart that you're still trying. Some great ideas above...

I do so hope you can rescue him.

But no matter what happens, thank you for trying, and for sharing the tale.
