    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-
