Thank you for pointing that out for anyone unfamiliar with how easily a bird with trimmed wings can fly away.

Oh itís ok. Heís molting now, heíll have them back in a month. Some are already coming in! In all honesty itís a little bit of a blessing. I get to take him out without worrying about him flying away, period end of sentence. Of course first preference is that he not barber at all, but if that is the card weíve been dealt, this ability is a consolation prize. By the time he has all of his feathers grown out and he has flight capability back, itís too cold to go outside.
