Re: African Grey Parrot Free Flight

Yes there are people who would never take
their birds out for free flight for fear of
something happening. That's fine, I never
said there was anything wrong with that.
All I was pointing out was how neat it was
to see these beautiful creatures in flight
and how exciting it is for them.
Whether you think they should be allowed to
do it or not is certainly up to you.
