Found a Budgie Outside

I was at the grocery store and saw a budgie in the parking lot. My significant other and I drove home to grab millet and a travel cage to try and catch it. The budgie would not come near us, of course, and flew to different trees in the parking lot. Then a guy came up to us with millet and a big net and asked us if we were trying to catch the budgie. We said yes. The guy told us he had been trying to capture this budgie for the past month, usually spending 2 hours a day trying to rescue it. He said on a few occasions one of his friends brought her caged budgies and they put an open cage with millet next to her caged budgies, hoping they could capture the budgie in this manner. I guess that didn't work either. I'm worried this poor little guy is going to freeze to death, because every night the weather is below freezing.

It's a normal green variety living in the trees in the parking lot in Madison, WI. Message me for more details.
:crycry:

If you could figure out where he is roosting at night, perhaps you could snag him while he sleeps with a big net. Of course he might be hard to find after dark.

We used a flashlight after sundown when our green cheek got out. He practically glowed in the light & we were able to locate him in a tree. Budgie feathers are probably the same way. :fingerscrossed:
