    Now for the realistic [​IMG]. I have never heard of anyone ever get their escaped house bird back. That does not mean that it never happened in this GREAT WORLD OF OURS . The math statistics is not in your favor. ;( Of course I'm SAD FOR YOU.

    Was he inside?If so,he will not survive for long outside.Someone may find him/her on their window sill or at their bird feeder if he/she makes it.I raise mine outside year round so they do climatize to your weather,but have to be out when the temps change to climatize.
    In N.H.,Tony.
