She flew away :(

Russy flew away and I couldn't find her and it's my fault and I couldn't stop crying. I looked everywhere for her and couldn't hear her.
I put up 20 missing notices yesterday. All through town and around the area.
Then I called the SPCA at about 6pm. Someone had handed her in in the morning. I was so happy I was crying.
She was found in the morning about 15-20mins walk from here. Man, what a little strong girl. This isn't an rural/small town with nice garden area. I live pretty much central town. So there would have been a lot of cars and traffic. My poor baby. And it was horrible weather the night she was out. She has a grazed cere and is really exhausted. Vet says she's okay though. I'm so happy to have her back <3
I wanted to send a note and a box of chocs or something to the people who handed her in, but they were 'anonymous'. I'm still so grateful. Got a text yesterday from someone who had seen my missing posters and said they saw a bird of that description yesterday at Brooklyn park - but that's the other way. I hope it was just a native bird and not someone else's budgie. If it was Russ, she really did fly heaps. I'm kinda proud of her actually, but so happy she's back.
Got a text at 5am (urgh) saying they found Russ. Maybe it's the people who handed her in. I asked when and where just in case it's not them.

My concern is that she's being very quiet and antisocial and looking tired, so hopefully it is just exhaustion and she'll be okay soon?

I'm so happy your story had a happy ending! My guess is exhaustion, stress, and probably slight trauma which she will recover from in a few days

Thanks, I hope that's all it is! She had a vet check and he said she was fine minus her grazed cere. She's breathing heavy - tail twitching with every breath.

I'm glad she is home, but sorry to hear she is feeling so bad. I'd be scared to death.

I was, I felt miserable and was crying so much when I found she was gone. I just hope she comes back to normal Russ soon <3

I'm so glad you got her back and hope once she gets some sleep and realizes she's safe, she'll be fine.

She's acting a bit better today. Slept outside her cage last night on her spiral. And she's chirping a bit. Last night she flew down to my hand (cos I was eating a crunchy bar and she wanted some hehe) but today she isn't coming to me. But she's improving

What a scare for both of you. Glad this had a happy ending and she will be all perky soon.

I'm glad there was a happy ending. Russy should be fine soon.

I wish I could have been as lucky as you to get my baby back

She's back to normal. She's just gone quiet cos I turned off my music but she's flying around, chirping, on my glasses, eating my food, being cute. She's back to normal
I love my birdie

Thank you for the update. I was worried about her, but I am very happy for you both.
