Re: Lost Kiwi - Budgie

Two more days where we've moved to our bikes to increase coverage, ringing his bell and calling his words, and not a sight nor a sound.

His cage has been strapped to the top of chimney with tablet playing budgie sounds in afternoon through dusk and into early night.

It has been a perfect storm that I feel needs to end. We have a good climate around here so he may live happily. I'd expect he would start to mimic local birds very soon and have a wonderful life around us, and we may spot him again.

That may very well be the case. Only you know how long is a reasonable period to devote significant energy and stress to finding Kiwi.

Re: Lost Kiwi - Budgie

Something got into Kiwi's cage and ravaged the place after the door fell down and trapped it. I think it was a squirrel. The bars got mangled where it escaped. Had to take the cage down and cleaned it up.

Daughter has been singing ever since the loss. She sings very well...

Re: Lost Kiwi - Budgie

My daughter has pondered getting another bird a few times over the past couple of months. She wondered if Kiwi could still be alive. If Kiwi is still alive, I have a suspicion of where he may be.

I have known since summer of a nearby apartment complex who's budgie owner would put their cage outside on the 2nd floor balcony, against the window. I think there was access from inside as the cage was always there. I looked closely for a green parakeet and one was not there.

The cage has been moved away for a while but today I happened to notice the cage inside at an adjacent wall in the window. There are in fact two cages there and many more budgies. They are inside so hard to make any detail. As I moved around the building to get another angle, I noticed another cage full of budgies on a 2nd floor balcony on the other side of the apartment. There were three budgies and one was green. Too far away to see detail and it was nearly dusk, but the color looked more pale.

Anyway, these birds are no more than 2000 feet from our home, as the crow flies, so what are the chances that Kiwi would not find his own kind and make home there? He was always brazen enough with my birds, he would probably run the place by now.

So, now the dilemma ensues...
