Escaped Birds

I have birds escaped before. Often they come back if they have been kept for some months at least. Today a newly acquired Golden-fronted Leafbird escaped. Hope to be able to get him back. Later, the shrike also escaped. But being kept for 2 moltings already, it was apiece of cake getting him back. The only trick is to find him hehehe!

In about one hour plus time, I saw the shrike by the gate. Quickly caught a roach and drop into his cage and eventually he found his way in. Phew! one less homeless bird to worry about.

It sets me thinking though...... maybe time to give the shrike some free-flying time. Will work out how to go about it by Wednesday.
