There is always the possibility Mochi joined a wild flock.

Very sad to hear this. There is a chance of getting the bird back within a day or a max of 24 hours, especially for small birds like Budgies and Tiels. Larger birds may last a longer period.

However sad it may sound, the harsh truth is that there are no wild flocks of Budgerigars anywhere on the Planet. There was one in Florida but it died out. In a small place like Maldives, i highly doubt it.

Do you stay in the capital city island of Mahe?


There is s remote possibility that they may join a flock of house sparrows (youtube) but that probability is 1 in a million..
There are wild budgies in Australia for sure---flocks.
I know someone who found their budgie after a week (the weather was nice, but it does happen).

Also, here is a 6 week reunion..https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland...tland-44951793

I don't live in Male', I live very far away from there (Kulhudhufushi)

We did lose Crippi once. We got him back that very minute because he was recall trained. My brother also lost a Lovebird 2 years ago... we never found him again. And then around the beginning of last year, we lost a budgie. We also never got him back.

There are no house sparrows or any birds like that here right now.

Was Crippi a budgie. a recall trained budgie is news to me. Since budgies are nomadic, they don't have a sense of a "home range" unlike say rosy faced lovebirds, conures etc.

Googled your island- it is a lovely place

Finding a budgie after a week borders on a miracle!! That is really good.

And of course I meant outside Australia. I know about those lovely large flocks of wild, untamed budgies in the outback of Australia but for their own sake i would not wish for any pet budgies (that may carry deadly diseases) to join these flocks. :greenyel low:
