    Patsy and Scott you are so right but it seems people just
    MAKE a bird adapt to their ways and their home completely
    instead of looking at the situation before they acquire a
    bird and adapt themselves and their home to the birds needs!
    If people want a bird in the home (yes this is just my
    opinion along with many like minds) they should make sure
    there is a safe place where the bird can be a bird and be
    able to fly etc. and then it can be introduced anywhere else
    with care and education. If a person does not have the
    ability to do this "why on God's Earth have a bird inside in
    the first place? - decoration? status symbol? pretty? etc.
