Came across this picture today and asked if I could share with others and received an answer of yes with in minutes. This is a topic that comes up often here. I so often hear but a bare eyed cockatoo is small and made for flight when I tell them Cassie can and does fly quite well when clipped. Well I think this picture says it all!

Thanks for sharing! It is a truth that can't be shared enough.

Exactly. I have posted here frequently that I lost my timneh grey outside for 34 hours in 2005 when I took her outside, believing that the fact that she was clipped and a heavy-bodied bird would mean at worst she'd fly to the ground and I'd pick her up. I'm lucky to have found her. It is not safe to take any bird outside unrestrained.
