How to Prevent a Parrot from Flying Away!

It breaks my heart when I get messages or comments about birds flying away.💔 That's why it's so important to take all the precautions for prevention!

Perry commented:
Mine flew away a few days back from the window. Please help me with that. Thanks. He always follows me around the house, and knows which room I'm in. When I call out his name, he will answer. Now that he flew away... it's very quiet without him. 
To prevent a conure or parrot from flying away, you can do the following:

Supervise the bird when outside of its cage: When your bird is outside of its cage, make sure to keep an eye on it and keep it in a secure area. If you have windows or doors open, make sure they are closed or have screens to prevent the bird from escaping.

Use a harness or carrier when travelling: If you need to take your bird outside or to the vet, use a harness or carrier to keep it safe and secure.

Train your bird to come when called: Recall training your bird to come when called can help prevent it from flying away or getting it back if an accident happens. You can use treats or positive reinforcement to encourage your bird to come to you when called.

Build a strong bond with your bird: Building a strong bond with your bird can help prevent it from wanting to fly away. Spend time with your bird, provide plenty of mental and physical stimulation, and make sure its needs are met.

Remember, birds are natural fliers, and it's important to provide them with opportunities to fly and exercise. However, by taking some simple precautions and building a strong bond with your bird, you can help prevent it from flying away and ensure its safety and well-being.
