I raised this bird when it was a baby bird. He has been out and about since before Christmas, free to come and go. I had been seeing him everyday, he had made property his territory and still made visits inside the house. I haven't seen him since Tuesday evening 3rd January. He'd been staying out overnights but made an appearance sometime the following mornings. I don't know how far he goes, or if he would go inside someone else's house, shed etc. He may have ventured further and taken shelter from bad weather on Tuesday night in someone's shed, garage, or dwelling and accidentally got shut in. Anything could have happened, but appreciate anyone that could check places a bird could've been shut in. Also if anyone's cat has caught a bird, or seen bird that died another way , that looks like him. I won't be angry or blame you or your cat, I'd just rather know than wonder and keep looking for him. Any information appreciated. Photos were taken new year and late December. Young and inquisitive.

13 February update: As Bob went missing nearly six weeks ago there will be some changes due to growth and moulting, he will have lost the fluffy feathers on chest, though he won't have adult colouring for some time yet. He may have gone completely wild and not behave like a hand reared bird anymore - but maybe not, so if anyone notices a bird that seems tamer than usual please me know.
