    Not so hard that he hurt himself, eh? Genius. You free-flight
    activists need to stop comparing amputation to wing clipping.
    That is absurd. I know of a few people near me that had
    flighted birds in their home that were perfectly happy,
    flighted, inside their homes. They both lost their birds this
    summer to open doors. One was a tiel and one was a CAG. Do you
    honestly want us to believe you leave your fully-flighted macaw
    in a room with an open door to the outside? I'm sorry. I'm not
    buying it.
