Here’s information on the bird pictured above, who was lost on Monday in the near of Kirkwood Drive & Kirker Pass Road in Concord:

LOST-Yellow sided green cheek. Her name is VENICE and she has a tag. My boyfriend was bringing in the cage from the balcony and the cage fell over.

If anybody has seen her, please email news@claycord.com.

Don’t you mean “ex” boyfriend? I hope you find her.

Charles-the-cat October 30, 2012 at 9:30 AM

She’s just beautiful. I’ll definitely keep an eye out.

micheLLeS October 30, 2012 at 9:39 AM

Shared with neighbors in the Old Kirker Pass and Laurel Drive Area. I hope you find her!

Time to get a new boyfriend. Hope you find your bird…..

Be sure to put up fliers at Concord Feed, Feathered Follies, and Rodie’s Feed & Pet Supply. Also, be sure to contact Contra Costa Animal Control.

Don’t give up. We found a cockatiel in Clayton about four years ago and he’s still with us. We contacted all the pet stores, Animal Control, “Cockatiel Rescue,” and even Claycord. But, we couldn’t find his owner. Birds can wind up several miles away from home – they love to fly. Once they become tired and hungry, they can be coaxed with bird seed or even fruit. Conures are partial to champagne mangoes.

Also contact the Contra Costa Avian Society (www.contracostaviansociety.org) They have a lost bird coordinator to spread the word within the birding community…

there were a bunch of feathers in front of my office this morning in Walnut Creek looks like my cornsnake ate the bird

Bird Lover October 30, 2012 at 11:49 AM

Ignore judas priest. Probably a bully growing up.

Bird Lover October 30, 2012 at 11:52 AM

Also look at the lost and found on Craigslist. They have pets listed that’ll there.

Sunstar October 30, 2012 at 11:55 AM

Delicious! Yum!

jtkatec October 30, 2012 at 12:11 PM

That bird is probably doing some early trick or treating. WOKKKKK!.

Tenarr October 30, 2012 at 12:19 PM

He’s probably gone and joined that wild parrot flock in Concord. So sad when you kids go bad and join a gang.

Cornsnake October 30, 2012 at 12:31 PM

@ Tenarr
I et those too.

94598 October 30, 2012 at 1:14 PM

Hello, Sorry about you bird. I have two beautiful lovebirds- a boy & girl that I am considering giving away. My kids are getting older and have no interest. You may have them if you wish- cages, food, and toys.

I’ll pass along my contact information if you would like them

jtkatec October 30, 2012 at 1:21 PM

Tenar, good one.

Cornsnake, were you belching when you posted, is that why “eat”, came out “et”

Cornsnake October 30, 2012 at 1:37 PM

@ jtkatec
Yup… I’m going for the birds from 94598 now. I be back aftr lunch.

Dear Bird Lover,

I truly hope your bird is found, or finds his way home.



Walnut Creek Resident October 30, 2012 at 2:18 PM

Number 1 and 4 and especially 13 you are very cruel.. Accidents happen. I am sorry about your birdie. I really will keep you and your bird in my prayers. So so sorry.

jtkatec October 30, 2012 at 4:05 PM

Yes, my middle name is Cruella, either that or Childish.

Pray Hard and Constant! October 30, 2012 at 4:41 PM

Yes it works. Last w/e right about the same area i lost an african grey. it was around 8 or 9 pm. we looked and called for some time. then we got up early in the am before the birds move around to watch can call. meanwhile i’m praying the whole time. i asked god (the father, as the scriptures show who to direct your prayers to) to bring the bird back safe and sound and that i couldnt live with this as it was my neighbors bird. also scripts say to ask w/ faith. so i did that too. and i prayed to bring him back before the storm. well the sun had set and the lights were already on outside and we were walking and calling and we heard him! he was in a huge eucalyptus tree and we heard him flapping and trying to get out. finally he gets out and flies across the street. oh no, that’s bad! no that’s good he flew onto the roof of his own house and sat there and waited for his owner climb the roof. when she was getting closer he picked his foot up to step up and waited till she got there. i guess he thought he could fly up but not down. and did he know that was his home or not? must have since he chose that roof. so dont give up!

Re: lovebirds October 30, 2012 at 4:44 PM

i do a bit of bird rescue. my own lovebird is what started this bird collecting. you can also ask the mayor for my email.

Kristen October 30, 2012 at 5:28 PM

Tell the owner to bring some missing flyers down to the Concord Pet-co, thats where I work and I spoke to a lady that found a bird and has been keeping it, and I told her to bring down some flyers and we would post themn up. Hopefully its the same bird.

Bird Lover October 30, 2012 at 8:11 PM

@ kristin there are two others missing birds in concord.One is a gray bird with an orange tail lost in the santos park area. If this is the bird on the flyer contact the claycord mayor and the other was a parrot lost in the landana street area which was multicolored and listed on craigslist.

Bird Lover October 30, 2012 at 8:13 PM

Todos santos ooops.

mama used to say.... October 30, 2012 at 10:32 PM

dont be facetious. not an honorable quality

Nathan November 1, 2012 at 5:27 PM

So sorry to hear your baby is missing. I know the pain and anguish all too personally. I really hope you find her soon and please update us when you do. I live in the area and will certainly be on the lookout.

Nathan November 1, 2012 at 5:36 PM

I hope that those commenters who find it funny or amusing to make light of another persons pain and sorrow will at some point realize how much additional sadness they are bringing to an already distraught individual. Seriously, shame on you. Hopefully you never find yourself in this position – karma is a son of a gun…

Think I saw November 1, 2012 at 6:13 PM

Sunshine November 1, 2012 at 11:12 PM

Bird Lover November 2, 2012 at 8:47 AM

What does the other lost bird look like?

Starfish November 2, 2012 at 9:10 AM

That is awful, what does it look like?

Me November 2, 2012 at 8:06 PM

Both birds look like the picture on claycord. However one is deformed “RUE” her leg sticks out to the side

Starfish November 2, 2012 at 8:37 PM

Will keep an eye out for her. Is there a location of where she might be or is this unknown?

Bird Lover November 2, 2012 at 8:38 PM

Have you tried walking around the neighborhood with some of their food in a bowl and shaking it and making a noise like their contact call and calling their names? Both of these ideas have worked before.

Me November 3, 2012 at 8:10 AM

I have hung posters, called 6 different place to file a lost report including the pound, I have walked the neighborhood (Kirkwood Dr & Kirker pass in COncord) calling them, I put the bird I still have in his cage by the sliding door so when he sings they may hear him
