Lost Budgie! Come home Kiwi!

Well, today is a very sad day. I got a call from my mum late this morning to say Kiwi, my budgie, took off out the backdoor...
Of course I raced home to try to find him... Well can you see him in the first photo? Spot the budgie!
I used a zoom on the second photo...
So he was in the neighbours very big tree... he wouldn't come down... then he took off to NP Boys High School... or course I chased after him.. found him i a tree over there but still wouldn't come down... then back to the neighbours tree, then down the street again..
I gave up once he took off again and went back to work the second time... very tiring.
Rushed home at the end of the day, walked around the neighbourhood and put flyers in the letter boxes... kept calling him and ringin his bell... I'm sure by now I look like a looney on the loose!
I heard him down the road but couldn't see him... kept calling and he followed me home, by the time I got to the back yard again he was up in the tree... at least I took photos this time and doesn't he look great in the tree!!!!
I stayed out til dark trying to get him down but he wouldn't come, I couldn't even bribe him with his favourite foods...

Sadly he is in for a very cold night out there in the big wild world, alone. He will be getting hungry by now too.. but it's dark and he won't fly in the dark.

I hope he survives the night and comes home in the morning....

If you make any cards in the next day or so make sure you put birds on them, it could be a good omen!

  1. Oh Jacqui, so very sorry, I know how much you really really love your wee bird and he is a special part of your life, I hope he comes back to where he belongs and will wish with all my might that it will have a happy ending.
    You never know he might be just having a little visit in the big wide world and then return full of adventures to tweet to you about!

  2. Hey Jacqui - Naughty little Kiwi! So sorry to hear that he's gone AWOL. I know how much you love that sweet little bird, and I'm sure he knows as well, so hoping that he comes home really fast to where he's so well looked after.
    Take care!
