In a tree behind his house. It has been 24 hrs. and he has had no food or water.

He's about seventy feet up.

Any suggestions on how to lure him back down?

    Probably put his cage out in the yard where he can see it (with food/water in there). He's probably scared being out in the world and will return to the familiarity/safety of his cage. We had a pet squirrel that used to get away from us and run up in the trees, but we could always get her back by putting the cage out on the deck.

    No. I knew this one would make for a good Friday night topic. [:D]

    Seriously. He put the cage with food out on the back porch and still nothing.

    So nobody has climbed the tree to save an animal that can obviously fly?

    If this will not occur, may I suggest a pet psychologist to determine why said parrot is reluctant to return home?

    My neighbor had two birds that got loose one afternoon. They never were found.

    I would hope that they would have come to some feeder or made friends with some people somewhere.

    Birds hate me....I haven't ever had any luck with any of them.

    I did try to help her find them though.

    I hope this one comes down before it goes off and gets lost. They are evil evil creatures, but I still hate to hear of anything happening to them.

    Personally, I have no use for them either. Two of our friends have these big birds along with my sister having one as well. These things stink and make a mess and that is about it! Agreed, mean animals.

    It's a Macaw, they are extremely bright and usually bond with their owners. I'm thinking he will eventually find his way down to his cage.

    We had several years ago, they have the mental capacity of about a three year old child.

    When I was about 15 years old....my mother had this devil bird named CHUCKLES. It was a green parrot...not huge, but pretty big. It loved my mother, but would come after me if nobody stopped it. I don't know why??? I never did anything to the silly thing. It would waddle across the floor with it's wings slightly out and come bite my shoe.....and those suckers can take a toe off. It tore a hole in my tennis shoe one day.

    Mother thought I was exaggerating one day....and tipped over toward me and let it cross from her shoulder to mine. It took a chunk out of my cheek in a split second.

    About three years later it went BERZERK and tore my mother up. It got on top of her head and just clawed and bit her all over. We heard about them losing it...but never had any trouble out of him (other than hating me.) It was shocking!!!!

    He went to a new home that very day....and I have never had the slightest hint of wanting one, not knowing what they can do to you out of nowhere. It was bad.

    I am surprised no one thought of this, but I am pretty sure you need to get one of WoodShed's Patented Parrot Calls. [:p]

    Good point! Hopefully it will not *, fly off and get lost for good.

    Of course, you could always get yourself a "World Class" 10/22 and surgically remove the limb from the tree. [:D]
