[ 911 BIRD ALERT MAIN DATABASE ]

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The main data base and list for lost and found birds can be found here

Lost/Stolen and Found bird reports can be submitted to this livejournal community.

The mods will then subsequently relay the posts here to the main database and/or members of the community can attempt to find matches either within the community or by referencing lost and found pages listed below.

You don't have to be actively searching for a missing bird in order to help.
Just being aware that a bird is missing in your area, helps in that, if you do see an exotic bird, you know who to contact to help return the bird home.

Every little bit of vigilance counts, even if it just means checking this or the main database from time to time looking for a match, or to become aware of lost birds in your area.

In the mean time, we need the largest base of members here possible in order to be most affective.

Also, this livejournal community is not completely limited to missing birds. Feel free to post information about any kind of missing pet. The more people that know about it, the more chance they have of being found.
[note: the main database however seems to be dedicated soley to birds. It would be a good idea to ask permission before posting about any other type of animal on there].

HOW CAN I HELP?

1) you can post any missing or found bird whether it's been found by you or by a friend. A person you know who found a bird doesn't have to live in your area. All you need is the information on the bird and where it's located

2) you can go to any of the sites listed below in resources under LOST/FOUND and see if you can find matches for any lost or found birds posted here on livejournal under parrot_alert911. If you find any possible matches, take a few minutes to contact each of the parties posting.

3) Just telling people about this resource helps a lot too. If you know someone who's missing a bird (or any other pet), direct them here. We'll do our best to help.
