Among these, parrots are the most popular, interspersed with the occasional canary or Mynah bird. Accordingly, this chapter is quite brief compared with some of the others. Nevertheless, I believe there is some useful information that can readily be applied in a practice setting. Information is also included on small bird radiography and in particular, methods that require no drugs or gas. Although I agree with authorities that tout the advantages of full restraint—and the manual, chemical, or gaseous means of achieving this—I vehemently disagree with the proposition that every small bird must be restrained, especially if the bird is seriously ill or injured.

As the wing is tipped up (termed an increased angle of attack), lift increases but only to a point, at which time lift abruptly decreases, causing the wing to stall, or cease to fly. Different wing shapes, or planforms, possess different aerodynamic qualities, with the elliptical wing most closely approaching the ideal for subsonic flight (Figure 4-1). As aircraft become faster, their wings become smaller, flatter, more angular, and swept back to decrease drag (Figure 4-2). But fast comes with a price; namely, a need for greater thrust and superior flying skills, especially at low speed.
