I was named

CoNGo Lil

I also live with 2 cats, 3 other birds and a dog.

Katie tried to befriend me and

I wanted to be nice ….

Sometimes RICHARD

hang with him when introducing the kids.

He looks really sharp.

I had outfits made to
look as good as he does.

A missing parrot is an owners worst nightmare…

Your post in the ONLINE database DOES NOT EXPIRE.\
Please keep us updated if there are sightings, etc…we will update your listing on the website.

When your bird is reunited, please let us know using the CONTACT FORM….–>>

NETWORK with others in your 50 MILE area that have lost ANY parrot with similar color and size before and after the escape. (–at least 50 miles–)

Sign up for our LOST and FOUND email alerts????

People find parrots and make a contact with LOST BIRD owners.
If the FOUND bird is not theirs, it could be yours. Make sure they have your contact information and you theirs.

Encouraging others to list their lost and found parrots in our database will lead to more parrots being reunited. ALSO A GREATER CHANCE OF LOCATING YOURS.

Get a police report…….this will help prove YOURS ESCAPED.

Notify animal control….send them a pic…

Check places on and offline for/on people selling PARROTS OF SAME SPECIES….These are some of the ways found parrots are found.

We have FaceBook Group and Page..they contain different listings. TRACK THESE POSTINGS.
1->>> facebook group
2->>> facebook page

Go to and check the shelters within a 50 mile radius…..AT LEAST..Everything should be done within that radius.
1– You have to list your postal/zip code
2– then under lost select OTHER…birds come under FOWL.

You can also register LOST PARROTS on that site.

Contact your local humane society…Alert them – send a picture….

Put notices in store windows, on gas pumps, in the back window of your cars, etc…….try to get a local TV station/Radio Talk Show to do a ‘special interest story’….
Contact vets, esp stores in your area..LEAVE/FAX A POSTER AFTERWARDS

Find and contact bird clubs, bird breeders in your area…..
Don’t give up looking…

Please understand, the more you do right now the better chances of
getting your bird back. If people know your bird is missed and loved
they may feel compelled to return your bird if they have found it.

It can take days, weeks, months etc to get them back.

I have seen people re-list found parrots months and years later as they continue to look for the owner.

Your REWARD should appeal to the greed of anyone that found or may know the whereabouts to return yours-not keep.

praying for a safe return..…… if questions contact me
