Found - budgie with leg band

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

This afternoon, I have picked up a male, green and gold budgie from the footpath on my way to get the kids from school. Lucky I didn't ride over him. He appeared exhausted and close to death with my untrained eye. Took him home on my bike (no easy task!), put him in a spare cage I have, gave him food (was a very hungry budgie!) and water and now he looks a lot better and has perked up. He has a leg band so I'm hoping I can track down the breeder to return him:

Leg band : 11384 ANBC BCV16

If you know who this gorgeous little guy belongs to, please let me know! 

Thank you.

Hi Rach,

I would suggest maybe finding out if there are any Budgerigar Clubs nearby and seeing if they have his ID in their system connected to a member of their club or maybe a vet or animal shelter would be able to help with locating his owner. 

Sounds like you're doing a pretty good job caring for him while you find his owner though :) Let me know how it goes!

Best of luck.

I did just that and great news! I found his owner! Pretty thrilled with that result. He escaped on Sunday morning so most likely hadn't eaten until I found him on Tuesday.

So now our budgie is missing his twinIMG_4366.thumb.JPG.74023fab52f2be5b4589b35d8b63d232.JPG friend and only has us to play with. Thank you for your help!

You're welcome! 

So glad you were able to get the little guy back to his owner :)  

Also thankyou very much for picking him up. It makes me sad that most people see an animal needing help but just ignore it so thankyou for not doing that. I'm sure the little bird and his owner are very grateful.
