    Hi, I understand not wanting to stress your bird now that he
    is coming around. If the trip to the vet is not far, I would
    go. Just think how much more he will like you when you
    'rescue' him from the mean person clipping him. He will be so
    happy to get home.
    I recently adopted a lory that completely freaked out when I
    put her in the car for her vet visit. I really think she
    thought I was getting rid of her. She bit the vet and caused
    all sorts of havoc. But as soon as she saw home, she was
    double loving and sweet again.
    Good luck
