She quietly landed some place and I couldn't see where. My brother and I walked around looking up into the basketball hoops (where she sometimes likes to land), up in the rafters, on chairs, and any other place I could think of her going. I was starting to freak out when 10 minutes went by and I couldn't see her, couldn't hear her, and couldn't call her. Finally I spotted her on the floor motionless, just sitting there all content with herself. She had eaten a lot, was tired, and just didn't want to fly any more. Anyway, point of the story is that these little birds really blend in with their surroundings and stay quiet so it is important to go through the entire area around your window and house with a fine tooth comb. Check the ground, check every bush, check every branch. More than likely your bird is still there but just blending in. Get as many other sets of eyes as possible.
When you do get your bird back, read this and take all of these precautions to ensure this never happens again. Never think that clipped wings will stop a parrot from flying away.
