    So, he is outside and you are trying to catch him, right?

    The cage is a good idea to lure him in. You can also have your hose ready and when he comes to feed you can drench him with water. If you can get him wet, he will be too heavy to fly off.

    I agree with Barb; try getting him wet, and then he won't be able to fly far.

    Set up seeds & millet where he can see it & come to & then be ready to soak him with the hose. He can't fly away if you get him really wet. But don't drown him or hurt him with a jet spray setting, make the setting flare out & spray like a shower. Have a spare cage or pet carrier to move the bird into. Let us know ... I love hearing they get caught & saved !
