Re: Attack Amazon

Thanks so much, I happened to think of that very thing as I
was typing the question...(DUH...) Should have done it sooner.
I do clip the Tiels's wings as he is a high flyer, but have
never felt the need to clip Paco's as she usually roams on the
floor. I did clip them tonite, and so appreciate any other
suggestion that anyone else may have. I love my baby, and will
do whatever to help her through this. I feel like she is
somehow distressed by my husband's presence. Thanks for your
advice...Well taken :-)
