    I lost my two year old Hahns Macaw on Thursday night during  a fire alarm incident. Hes missing in the Barrow-in-Furness area, however he may fly further. Hes bright green with red tipped wings and has got a tag on his right leg. He responds to Toby and likes to say good morning, whats that and hello. Hes fairly tame but can be a bit nippy, especially towards men.  If anyone finds him or spots him could you please contact me at chelsie.t1988@btinternet.com

    Chels,

    You need to make sure you've contacted the local police, RSPCA and any local vets or pet shops. Put up posters in the area where Toby went missing - someone may have seen him and any way that they can get your contact details may help.


    We really hope your boy comes back to you soon. We'll be thinking of you,

    I've emailed the local station but not heard anything back. Theres a advert in the paper with a reward. I think my next step will be flyers though peoples doors. Phoned the local zoo as well as they have macaws that fly freely and may have been handed in there. His cage is in the back yard incase he flys by. God Im so worried. What are the chances of getting him back? Told all the local kids theres 50 pounds worth of sweets in it for them so they're all out looking. I just hope his instincts kick in to look for food and warmth. Thanks for all the support and help. It really means a lot xx

    I'd make sure you've got a well stocked birdtable in your garden too - stocked with all his favourites, of course.

     

    Our thoughts are with you.

    Still no news on him.Beginging to get really worried. I think either someone has got him and kept him or hes in hiding having a adventure time. I've let all the vets know anyway incase he turns up injured. Hopefully he may start flying to people in desperation, we have a lot of schools around our area so lots of people walk the children to school. Im not sure what distance he could possibly fly in three days. The only picture I could find of him is one where he's just had a bath all the others are videos. Just hope he turns up soon

    It might be worth just getting a generic pic off google so if you are doing flyers people have an idea of what they are looking for, though Id hope people had enough sense to realise it wasnt your average garden sparrow. Fingers crossed here for you too, hopefully he will make a safe return.

    Never give up hope, I have known of people getting their birds back weeks after they go missing. Just keep going round the vets, police, RSPCA, put your posters everywhere, in parks, in bus shelters, anywhere that you can think of, but the longer he is missing for the further afield you may have to start advertising. Good luck and may he be returned safely to you

    My one aim is to serve the parrots in my care, to help those to weak to defend themselves, and bring alittle happiness into their lives, I prefer parrots to people but can handle them in moderation :)

    Still no Toby. Somebody thought they heard him but I checked all around the area and couldnt find him. It was ice cold last night, what are the chances of him surviving it? It feels like I've lost a child. Would getting another Hahns, eventually, help me get over toby or would it remind me too much of him? x

    I know exactly how how you feel Chels. I spent the worst two hours of my life looking for Bosun, gw macaw, whilst hubby was away in the Far East. Will keep everything crossed for you.

    Chels,

    Don't give up hope. Pete (my hubby) has just reminded me about his Mum managing to catch a B&G macaw that was feeding off peanuts on her birdtable. When she contacted the Police they traced their records and found the owner to reunite them. Apparently he'd been missing for 3 months. So please keep your spirits up and the very best wishes,

    Helen & Pete x

    Will he survive the cold? Its the not knowing thats killing me. In my area someone who found a parrot would more than likely keep it, I just wish somebody would phone me to tell me he's ok and being looked after.
