I don't think there is any sweeter moment than when you first see the one that's been missing. I'm so glad you got Axel back, and none the worse for wear. Truly amazing.
I had a Maximillian pionus that did the same "oh, I don't ever fly, don't worry" thing with me too. The first time he even seemed to remember he had wings, I had taken him to the bird store to be clipped, ironically, and he leaped off my hand, lapped the store a couple of times, then headed for the front door just as a customer came in. And then he missed the door. He hit the glass OVER the door with a terrific crash and fell direction onto the terrified, screaming customer who fled right back outside, shedding my dazed (and fortunately unharmed) bird in the process. We were not popular with anybody, including the store owner, for quite a while.
Clipped is good. Sleep well, Axel, and you too, Sally!
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile
