Just reading about free flight gives me anxiety.

It should. Loss is just a reality.

there's an add on craigslist right now for a macaw lost in free flight. the guy makes it sound like he put a TON of work into training with the bird, too, and that the bird had been flown free flight for quite a while prior to being lost. There are just too many variables in it for me to do myself I think but it does sound really amazing.
When my flighted cockatiel escaped for a week I was surprised (And really really really happy!) that I got her back, especially since I never did any recall lessons with her or any training at all actually...

Apparently entire trained flocks can get lost.

For the aviator harness, there are flight lines. It may not be the same as complete free flight, But I think it's pretty close.

If I were to lose any of birds, I don't know what I would do. Canada is an unforgiving place for parrots.

Moa - Is it a parrot named Cecil? If so, yeah, the guy's very experienced w/ FF. There's some speculation that someone with a Lincoln Navigator nabbed the bird.

That's always been one of my greatest fears w/ FF - a do-gooder (or do-badder!) nabbing a nice tame bird and not giving it back.

I've lost a conure doing FF. I trained it. I only hope that someone nabbed it and now has a nice pet.

don't remember the add too well, but that sounds like it.

I still feel sort of guilty since I found my first bird flying outside. She was tame and obviously loved prior to being lost and though I did my best to find the owners then, now that I know more about birds I can think of so many more things I could have done. I got a great pet by finding her but I just hope no one was missing her too badly =/

Seriously, I don't understand idea of free flight.
The bird, even the most social, is still THE BIRD!
And people think, that nature can be socialized to the level they want to, ech...
