Abstract Wing clipping can be defïned as the practice of clipping (trimming, cutting) the feathers (Fig 1) on a bird's wings so as to limit is ability to fly. Before discussing this any further, it must be emphasised that no wing clip can guarantee that a bird will not fly away - and this needs to be reinforced to the owner.
