I'm curious how you would have handled it? Also for the purposes of other people reading this thread it would be good to hear because if there are ways to ensure the safety of a bird with a brain injury without clipping I am all for it.

I have safety chains at doorways..so they can not be opened freely when bird is free. Cheap and easy way to secure the house..just that chains have to be tight -no room left the bird to escape.
Ofcourse I have to be very careful when I open refrigerators door. She knows that sound, and it's quite a feeling when a Senegal arrives with full speed and stops on ones shoulder.
Sorry about writing mistakes.
