    Oh no! Looks like he's way up there too and there's NO protection from predators, YIKES! If it were me, I'd climb that tree in the dark and knock his butt to the ground, then grab him (or have a helper grab him) lol. Guineas are blind in the dark, use that to your advantage!

    Soft frisbee? Preferably before it's totally dark....

    I fear my birds will take to the trees one day.

    That tree is about 50 feet high and everything you try to get him down with just makes him fly up higher.. [​IMG]

    He did fly down last night and I almost got him, but I got his tail feathers and some of those came out. [​IMG] He's back up there again this morning and this tree is about 70-80 feet in the air.

    Got him!

    Finally! We went to my grandpas and borrowed his havahart trap and I just came back inside from letting Mr/Mrs. Guinea back into the guinea coop.

    So happy you got him. They can cause you alot of sleepless nights. I know. Peeps helped me train mine. Good luck with them. You will need it. [​IMG] I still need luck with mine. Everytime I think I have figured them out [​IMG]. Love the picture by the way.
