    I think Alisons response in this quote says it best, especially in the
    last line. I will post the comment and then her reply. Alison wrote

    I have seen and heard of several and thats is sufficient cause for me
    to clip the
    wings for the safety of the bird, not to mention all the
    other 'unclipped bird'
    injuries. And just for the record, I have had both flighted and
    unflighted birds
    over the last 28 years, and I have never seen a noticable difference in
    the birds
    level of happiness. The only difference has been in the level of
    safety. -Alison-
