    My tropical parakeet flew off in the beginning of November out of it's cage.

    Well, I guess you know what happened to Reggie (we named him that lol) in 2-3 weeks eh? Especially up in Wisconsin in November...

    Wow, what are the chances of losing a cockatiel, only to have one be founded by someone else, only to have it to turn out to be the wrong cockatiel, in Massachusetts.

    Well, the bird is alot lourder and bites you if he doesn't like what you are doing like when you try to get him back into the cage. If he will stay still I might be able to get some pics. of him to compare with the old one.

    The previous owner(s) may have released it because of the bad behavior. Give it as much TLC as you can.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    You can train birds out of it, you just make sure there bloughs don't work and when they bite you they don't get what they want.

    Good luck, he may still come back.

    My neighbor's cockatiel got loose one time and was gone for a month. Then one day he flew back to the cage and waited for my neighbor to let him in.

    Try setting the cage outside where your bird might be able to spot it.

    She actually might be more attracted. They're pack birds(is that even the term??) so you may end up with other free cockatiels landing in your yard.

    Every now and then a cockatiel will fly around the lake where I live and my neighbor's bird will signal to them so they'll end up landing in one of our yards.

    If you have a second cage, set it outside with food and water in it and the door propped open.
