As a wildlife carer, it is sometimes difficult
as I get a lot of calls for escapee's or whether they have been let out or not,
I don't know. If a bird is sick, it also can look friendly to people. I get
calls all the time with people saying "I have a bird in my backyard or I've had
a bird for 3 weeks which I found in my yard and I think it is a pet as it is
friendly?" Most of the time it is a very sick bird, but we do get escapee's in.
I have a S/Crested Cockatoo which I have had for some weeks now, I tried to find
his owner but nobody came forward for him, he talks very well. I have found a
home for him, he is going this morning with a female S/C Cockatoo, down the
coast on 10 acres.
