Help please!! Amazon took flight outside

Hello! We're in a bit of a bind. Our YNA, Soda, took an unexpected flight yesterday and really showed us what he is capable of. Luckily, he stayed close but is continually perching as high as possible. We ran out of sunlight after nearly 6 hours, so he ended up staying outside. The sun is on it's way up and I'm hoping today will be the day he decides to come down. We tried "spooking" him down yesterday until we read that's exactly what not to do. Our approach today is more of a "let him come to us" but I'm open for suggestion. We have his mobile perch outside and another perch by the top window where his cage is. It's the room he shares with our son so we moved the cage over a bit so it's visible and are planning to leave the windows open. I've checked this morning and he is in the same tree he was in last night. I read that once the sun comes up they typically are ready to fly around 8 or 9. We'll be keeping a close eye on him today but if there is anyone out there that has experience with this, I'm open for suggestion. We're all attached to this crazy bird but our son in particular is the bonded person. Please help.

Hi charlieman33, I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss of Soda!

Have you yet listed on Parrot Alert 911? Many lost birds are reunited with their owners through that service, including some among our own Forum community. I've included their link below...

https://www.parrotalert.com/

The following links have lots of other great hints and tips too...

Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you. Sending every good wish and hope that Soda is safely returned to you very soon!

Food!

Most all birds /Parrots will be interested in eating after near 18 hours without.

Can a Ladder be placed into the tree to get close to him? If so, it may help as he may have a fear to flying from a high place.

Re: Help please!! Amazon took flight outside

We do have an extension ladder unfortunalty he's going much higher than it will reach. We have a ton of beautiful mature trees in our neighborhood so he's got his pick. We tried climbing them but can't get to the top where he is as the limbs are too fragile. I'm planning on giving him a bit to warm up as he's currently not talking (he's pretty quite and reserved in the morning) and I'll let him see me fill up the bowls on him mobile perch. Thank you for the suggestion!

Depending on where you are, you maybe able to get your Fire Department to come out with a ladder truck.

My JoJo knows my plastic cracker bowl! It makes noise when I shake it and I use that to get him to change rooms!

Re: Help please!! Amazon took flight outside

I'm hoping for an Easter morning recovery for your Amazon! I am rooting for you.

Maybe call a tree service? Some of those guys will climb any tree.

Good luck.

Mike

Re: Help please!! Amazon took flight outside

By remaining close, Soda seems to be signalling the willingness to be rescued. Some birds have difficulty "flying down" to their families. Food definitely a good motivator. If he flies away, don't give up, rather engage some of the tips posted by LaManuka. This one in particular is comprehensive: Bring Them Home! Tips On Locating A Lost Bird

Good luck, please keep us advised, we're always here to provide encouragement!

He's still in the tree right by our house. He's talking to us and sounding a little stressed but his body posture seems to be content. I've tried to call the local tree services for a boom truck but no luck. We'll continue to keep watch and hopefully his hunger will convince him to give getting down a try. Thanks for checking on him!!
