    it is the best thing for him...we've all known someone who lost
    a bird to the outdoors. some are lucky enough to be
    found....others are not.. with plenty of attention and a few
    treats he will return to normal...i must keep my birds clipped
    regularly due to the location they are at in my home and the
    fact that the only thing that keeps them in the avairy is thier
    own want to....they are very spoiled as well, good luck,jill
