Feeling pretty shit today bros, dumbass dad left the front door open this morning and the yellow one escaped. Drove around for a few hours playing sounds he would respond to (our voices, the sounds of other budgies) but no dice. Left out one of our empty cages and a strand of millet by our front door in case he somehow finds his way back, even though I know it’s futile. Even put up several missing posters around the local area. Is there anything else I can do at this point? He’s been gone for about 7 hours as of me posting this. He’s the partner of green in pic related btw.

That's how I got my first budgie. It was in my grandparents backyard one time when I came over.
>>
>>3589538
I know exactly how that feels. I had one who flew away too and I chased after him the whole day. I actually managed to find him on a tree after two hours because I asked people on the streets if they saw anything and one gave me a tipp. After finding him he flew away once again because he wasnt really tame. But I managed to find him a couple times more by going around town and listening closely to my surroundings. I knew his call so well that I even heard it when he was hallf a mile. I carried around a cage with his parter bird, what also helped making them call for each other. When it got dark outside I found him sitting on a tree infront of a house. He seemed tired and exhausted so after a time he actually landed on the cage and ate the milet I layed on it. Caching him would have been pretty hard nevertheless but luckily an old lady, who lived in the house opened the door and aloowed us to carry the cage with him ontop of it inside, where we caught him with a blanked. I hope you will hear your budgie's call sometime in your neighborhood, maybe its not too late. They can survive outside if its not too cold at night. Also if he was tame it could be very well that someone else found him and is carring now for him, I hear that this happens all the time from people I know. Maybe you can inform your local pet shelter or hang signs in other parts of your city. I wish you good luck.

There are cats crossing my yard.
I don't want to shoot them because I know at least one belongs to a neighbourg, but they fucking murdered so many lovely birds that used to come this summer.
Is there anything I can do to make them fuck off? I don't want to poison them :(

The only one that can use them well are the hyper-violent chimps that would wage war against us if they could. Why aren't we uplifting a species we actually get along with instead of murderapes?

Imagine if certain dogs were as smart as us and lived among us as equals. Herding, bomb sniffing, and police work would never be the same. Fuck, even the army. If dogs were smart enough they could learn how to use body-mounted weapons systems and start shooting people. Imagine entire fucking packs of assault collies with rocket launchers and fucking laser beams on their foreheads

We can't just make species smart, I think OP's point was to give pongos an evolutionary boost and a survival boost. Also, this isn't a chimp board, we're all about pongos.

Too big. Your dog will think you think it's obese (because of how much space you're giving him) and might become anorexic.

in my spanish history class this was a topic brought up by the prof when we talked about Cuba. Commies would relocate country bumpkins into the city and you'd get shit like this. A movie we watched had a scene where a bunch of dudes were hoisting a cow into an apartment for slaughter.

Honestly I can't buy the Ibrahim modification. Those legs are too short to walk on, and the front paws were not made for walking.

Just waiting until this get rectified. Spino will have it redemption arc.

>Those legs are too short to walk on
They aren't adapted for walking, but for diving. Cormorants, anhingas, frigatebirds, kingfishers, gannets, pelicans, penguins, and ducks have legs of similar proportions. Notice how all of the animals i mentioned share the characteristics of not moving well on land, but being great at underwater fishing, with their stubby and muscular legs being used as paddles. You don't see flamingos or storks diving because their legs are too long and would cause a lot of drag, so they fill the niche of waders, but short legs are great for a underwater fisher niche, with the drawback of worse mobility on land.
>>
>>3593117
Bird legs are sturdy and well built, unlike the Ibrahim reconstruction.
Just because you only see part of a cormorant's legs doesn't mean he's not packing a whole lot more under that coat of feathers.
