For that reason it is over decorated and kinda cheesy!!
I did clip him last summer, he was getting sooo aggressive and I was having lots of trouble with him but I regretted it because it sent our trust back really far . He is fully flighted again and can get great height. He's so proud of himself and he does get exercise. As long as he is safe, I'll most likely keep him flighted-he is a bird after all!
Mrs.JP3-could you drape something over your bedroom mirror to keep Tobie safe and uncover when you want to use it? Perhaps just a light scarf? Just a thought.
RubyDoo and Tumi- I'm sooo glad he's ok, I'm sorry you had to go through that. I'm had a mad dash to the vet myself (my chihuahua) and it's such an awful thing to go through.
Unfortunately it's a huge obnoxious double sliding mirror closet.
I have a long rod that I used to hang curtians over a patio slider so I just need some sheers and the main issue is disposing of the mirrors. .. I hate them. (First world problem )

Sliding closet doors aren't that hard to take out and get replacements at the hardware store. As mirror doors are dated and NOT assets to your house, you can consider it a home improvement project that just HAPPENS to help the birds.
