If you have a local bird club, they are often an excellent resource too. Sometimes members will come over and assist with trying to rescue the birds.

Poor bird. Yes, try to find a group to catch the bird. Having been a pet, he probably doesn't have very good survival skills. You may want to run a "Found" ad too; they are generally free.

I contacted the Humane Society; they have a special bird guy who has known about this bird for two months now.
I have his cell phone number and will call him the next time I see the cockatoo.
The bird must have *some* survival skills to be flying around the island for this long, but we don't want him to starve or be caught by the wrong people.
My neighbor said she saw some landscape guys trying to catch the cockatoo a couple days ago--I am sure they know enough to realize how valuable the bird is, but might not care that much about the bird's welfare.

Here's an article about capturing an escaped pet bird that I thought you might want to read.

This should have been a separate post. Anyway, the answer to your question is yes.
