Hey guys, I found this posting on Craigslist and received permission from the owners to cross post this.
If you or someone you know is in the Wichita, Kansas area, please be on the lookout for a lost parakeet. 12 year old “Charlie” escaped his travel box sometime yesterday (3/19) in the vicinity of Greenwich and Pawnee. Coloring is gray with blue/pink chest and stomach (picture embedded) No band. The wind yesterday was blowing south-southeast anywhere from 10 to 25 miles an hour, and today south-southeast at approximately 12 mph plus bursts. Not sure where that would put him by now.
Owners are distraught and offering 50 dollar reward but the bird is priceless to them. His bondmate is extremely distressed, I was given permission to list the owners number for texting, so if anyone does happen to spot him, please notify Jay and Em at
(316) 258-8193. Please take a photograph, even if you can’t trap or coax him down, that will at least keep their hopes alive of getting him back. Jay is disabled and Charlie is his therapeutic companion bird.
If you don’t live near here, please reblog this in the hope of finding someone who is. The desperation in Em’s messages is absolutely devastating, this bird is their precious baby. If, like I do, you follow any fellow birblr you can get your hands on, you know there has been loss today. Please help this couple hope there won’t be more.
