If your parrot has gotten out of his cage and you're having difficulty catching him, here's what to do. Dim the room lights, give the bird a chance to settle down, and then toss a light weight blanket over him. If the bird is much smaller, such as a finch or canary, use a towel instead of a blanket. Then you can carefully bundle the bird up and put it back inside its cage. Careful! Birds can still bite through the blanket.
