Some people free-fly their birds outside. This is dangerous because of the devastating consequences one little mistake can cause. No matter how bonded a bird may be to you, you can never predict what may spook him and cause him to fly off. Once your bird gets too far away, he'll get more scared and fly even further. It doesn't take long for your bird to be miles away from home, lost, alone, and subject to the dangers of predators and the elements.
