I once saw a video of someone who caught a wild budgie. What they did was put their own parakeets in a smaller cage inside a larger cage. Therefore as the budgie approached his friends, he entered the larger cage - and then shut the door.

I think this didn't work so they then tried having the birds inside and leaving the screen door open. The budgie had to get inside the house to find his buddies - then close the door before he could fly out. Having other budgies is the best way to catch a budgie. Hoping you can catch him soon ! <3

He is out of sight again. It is getting cold and I have little strength left. I will take a short break. I think he's gone a bit further because he no longer responds to me, or I just can't hear it.

I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow....

Have you read through this thread? There are a lot of great suggestions there that may help:

Bring Them Home! Tips On Locating A Lost Bird

Birds are more resilient than we give them credit for sometimes. There was a lost lovebird here once, and he spent half the winter outside in below zero temps before he was caught and returned to his owners.

If it gives you any bit of hope my neighbor said one day a year or so ago a budgie just flew right up to her in their yard and she still is caring for it . Also my old boss helped rescue a cockatiel hanging around in a parking lot and still has it as a pet too. Like I mentioned before Facebook lost and found pets is a good page to turn to because there is a good chance someone could just have her and not sure how to find the owner.

Play budgies sounds really loud from. Your phone. I just found some happy budgies sounds on you tube and played really loud for an hour and the escaped budgie blue boy showed up and circled me.
Wishing you the best don't give up! Tosse seeds out on the ground too they recognize them when flying over or might food wild bird back to your yard to find them

Jeff has been sighted a few streets away. The house owner(s) will look tomorrow. If I wake up early, me and my grandma will go look around for him. I'm literally jumping with joy!!

Oh Pipp, I so hope that either the neighbours or you and your Grandma capture him tomorrow!
Sending all my prayers, and every bit of good wishes that I possess.

What should I do once I catch him? Should I take him to a vet? I don't want to stress him out too much... I think I will isolate him for a few weeks just incase he caught an illness. I will also maybe put a heat source near him, like boiling water next to him cage to warm him up because it was (and still is) quite cold. There is no rain yet, I hope it doesn't rain until we get Jeff back.
