LOST SUN CONURE FROM HOWELL NEW JERSEY.
On Thursday, May 27, 2010, Mango a 1 year old Sun Conure flew out side and was frightened away from the( Winged Foot Ct.) Townhouse Development in Howell, NJ. He is a pet and is fed daily and has been missing now for almost a week. Flyers have been put up and now relying on help from good natured people who may see him in the area to let me know, so I can get my beloved pet back.
He is about 12" inches long from beak to tail and bas bright orange and yellow feathers on his neck and body and red feathers around his eyes, and green feathers on the edge of his wings. He has a silver ID band on his right foot. He is brightly colored so he will be easy to see. He is still very young, is fed daily, and is not accustomed to being outside.
If you do see him and say "hello" he will most likely say "hello " back. He also may step onto your finger if you say "Step Up." Take it slow, offering food will help. He always likes to take bread. He also may do a loud shriek that you can tell apart from other birds. He normally does this shreik in pairs.
Its been over a week, he could be miles away by now, so even if you are not in the Howell, NJ (07731) area, please let me know if you see a bird that matches this description and we can verify by the number on his band.
If you see him at all, please contact me as soon as you can. It is very much appreciated, he is very much missed and needs to be back home where he is safe.
Thank you - Terrence.
we have some ads up on Craigslist, birdnet.com petfinder, etc. He may be flying with a pack of other non Conure/Parrots Birds, so if you see a out of place bird with others, let us know, we may be able to narrow down his location from good bird sightings !
