My Thoughts On If That Was Sunshine Or Not....
.....hmmmm...Well, I think the calmest bird that there is would certainly become more nervous & 'shakey' because that is their survival instincts taking over. And those would come ROARING back if Sunshine figured out he/she is very far from his nest. One way to do this, push his cage outside if you can. If they SEE it, oh yes! They will remember all the food, love, toys, security, and happiness they experienced there & will fly to it!!

Ten miles away isn't that far for a bird to fly. Especially one trying to fly for a distance which is taxing for a bird not used to doing it. Winds also can carry your bird for a very long way with little effort on his part other than holding his wings out! Landing, flying downwards, those are very hard maneuvers to master. As they are for human fliers, too! Seeing other birds, especially during Spring time when hormone levels are more intense & competition for females are high. Territorial birds that usually aren't "cranky" can become so during Spring. So, yes, I would expect while Sunshine was trying to survive, water & food would have been very HARD to find. But for that long a time, parrots are much smarter than the outside birds & could've learned where people had feeders & bird baths at quite easily. That would explain a skinnier version of what your memory holds.

Was there ANY whistle, sound, word, the two of you did together? That would be one way of testing. Remember those cockatoos I told you about? That was the ONLY distinguishing thing that the rescue had taught them. They had a little game or trick they would play with the birds. The trainer would fold up a dollar bill quite tightly, then give it to the bird who would then go over to a cup, jar, whatever, and put it in!! They DID that with these birds and even after 4 months, Miss Emmy, the last one found, she remembered it & DID it!! So, it wouldn't hurt for your good Momma to find out FOR SURE whether it is Sunshine or not! It might take a couple of visits. If that is alright with the person who found them. Even have Mom hold her/him(?) to see if he may just run up her arm & snuggle her ear!

That is a hard place to be, a parront of a lost parrot. Our prayers go out to all of you! And that's one thing, too, those prayers do help! Hugs, SamIAm
