Retrieving A Lost Parrotlet

This may not be a question that you can answer, however I must field it to you in desperation.

I reside in Victoria B.C. My parotlett flew outside this evening and is in a nearby tree. Is there any cours of action that I can try to do to get him in before dark?

In desperation. Thank you for your help with this matter.


Dear Michael:

I am so, so sorry. However, many times pet parrotlets will try and find a person. You should call local pet shops, veterinarians (even non bird treating ones), feed stores and check the animal shelter. I’ve had more than one parrotlet returned to their owner when they went to a person and the person brought them to a vet or a pet shop. As for cold and shelter, parrotlets are pretty good a finding shelter and most of the time, so long as it isn’t freezing, they can survive cold temperatures pretty well. When they get hungry they often look for a human so hopefully a good Samaritan found him and took him somewhere bird related. You should also see if Victoria still has a local bird club- they may be able to help put the word out. I also know there are online lost bird websites and newsgroups (you can google it) and they will make the information available to every online bird owner in the area.

Best of luck and I will keep you and your little one in my prayers.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Sirs:

On behalf of my wife, Tina, I wish to thank you for your advice concerning our lost parrotlet. I wrote to your society requesting information of what options I had to retrieve a lost bird. It was your response that aided us in being reunited with our bird. My family had given up hope for the bird's safe return. It was your e-mail that suggested that we check in with our local SPCA. It turns out that our parrotlet flew to a picnicking family after gone missing for two days.

The good Samaritans were kind enough to turn the bid over to local SPCA officials.
Were it not for your suggestion to check with the SPCA, we would never have been reunited with our bird

Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter.

Michael, you have made my day! I am SO HAPPY to hear this! I’m sure your entire family is very relieved. Thank you so much. Do you mind if I print our emails in our journal as it may help someone else who’s bird is lost? Thank you so much for letting me know and I am very glad that IPS was able to help!
