Is this the number you called? When did you call? It IS Monday, so they may be at work or something. Give them a chance to get back to you.

it is a 2008 bird and i am about 40 minutes from new bedford
If no one calls you back, you can feed the bird for a day or two and take it about 10 miles from your house TOWARD home and release it.
That's if it is not sick or injured. A 2008 bird should easily be able to make that trip.
Does the bird feel particulary skinny? Any way you can post a picture of it? Just would like to make sure that it CAN make it home.

i can take a picture later on today and email it to you. he seems pretty plumb when i put the seed down for the first time he gobbled it all up pretty fast, but i have not seen him drink any water i have tried a variety of bowls and dishes and he just knocks them over

should i be concerned about the weather when i release him?

yes, just make sure that it's not going to rain any that day. I would usually warn about the wind and the direction it's blowing, but no further than home is, unless it's a tornado, it shouldn't hurt either way. Head wind or tail wind.
