The reason for flight is a Happier and Healthier bird. All of the
benefits of flight well outweigh any cons. If you choose to ignore
them, that's your prerogative.
I could take cassima's attitude and say, if a flighted bird flies out
the window or door it is the owners fault for not keeping track of them
but the truth is there are hazards birds face whether they are clipped
or can fly. It is ALWAYS the owners responsibility to keep them same.
However I will refer back to this articles for anyone who wants to talk
about specific dangers for flighted birds. It is well shower more
dangers are lurking for birds that cannot fly.
The point here is keeping an animal or child safe does not give you the
right to cripple them.
