Quark is an only bird now. Capa flew away when my mom was carrying her crap in the front door. He must have gotten scared because I always go in and out of the front door with him out of his cage and he’s never tried to fly off. #guiltstickensobbingwithmyheadonthefloor
Don’t feel bad, it’s not your fault nor your mom’s. For all you know he’s still around the place just too scared to move. Just for the next day or two, have her leave the cage outside with Quark in it (secure the cage well). Capa might fly to it if he sees it. He may yet find his way back home and if he doesn’t then you’ve done all you can. Console yourself with the knowledge that Capa had a happy time living with you. Quark is still with you so make the most out of your situation. Don’t beat yourself up too much!
