GOOD NEWS! Lost Grey in New Mexico is recovered!

Odo's found! Two nights in sub-freezing weather (21 degrees) and one blowing snow storm - he managed to get about 4 miles from home, landing on the patio rail of an apartment complex. The maintenance guy knew what he was and knew he looked very cold. He wrapped his coat around Odo and put him in an empty apartment while he went to do some detective work. I had posted a notice at the PetSmart right across the street - The apartment folks called, asking about a missing grey and got my number. I gratefully gave the young man a $1000 reward.

Odo is going to the vet this afternoon - he seems to be weak and he's having trouble walking. We'll see if he has frostbite. He's mad at me but he's home and warm. Thought you'd like to know.
Great to see the 2 of you re-united I hope all goes well after Odo's adventure.
Thank God for the little guy. I've heard that escape parrots survive winter in central park (NYC), but I've always wondered how.

and how adaptable they've become.

Odo isn't mine. The post was simply a copy of an e-mail from a list I'm subscribed. When I got the original e-mail about his/her escaped I figured there was no way he/she would survive. Fortunately I thought wrong.

There is absolutely no relationship to what you thought and the birds survival.

Try and keep up. This thread was over weeks ago.
