I tried to post this yesterday, but I guess it didn't go through...... so here it is again.
Saturday morning, around 11 AM, I looked out the window at my birdfeeder and saw a greenish, blue, aqua colored parakeet !! He was feeding
right along with the sparrows and chickadees. I just assumed it was someone's pet that got away and thought, " I have to save it " !
Well the first thing I did was take my two parakeets outside in their cage. I put them on our patio and they just started chirping away.
The parakeet was still on the bird feeder, but stopped eating and starting looking around, because he heard my birds.
My next move was to get my spare bird cage and set it beside my other one, with the door open and a dish of seeds. I thought if he flew over to see
my guys, he may venture into the other open cage.... well, about 5 minutes after I put the cage out, my neighbor next door decided to start up his
lawn mower and all the birds on the feeder took off. The parakeet hasn't come back. I hate to think what may have happened to him.
What do you think the chances are that he found his way back home? I kept an eye out all weekend, hoping he would come back.
I had my birds outside hoping he would hear them chirp.
Would he remember how to find the bird feeder again, or do you think he got so spooked that he just kept flying???
