The goal of the Talk Budgies forum is promote the Best Practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

It is the forum's position that pet birds should not be taken outdoors unless they are safely secured in their cage and under constant supervision.

Even budgies in aviaries have been attacked and killed by hawks that managed to grab them with their razor sharp talons through the stainless mesh of aviary walls.

I agree with Therm that if you want a pet companion for hiking, you are much better off getting a dog.

Birds with clipped wings can still fly well enough to escape or be killed by a predator.
Harnesses are not ever recommended for budgies.
Budgies are much too small and fragile and even putting a harness on a budgie could injure the bird severely.
Even large birds have escaped from harnesses or become tangled in them and severely injured or killed.
Hawks can and will attack a bird in a harness just as easily as they attack a bird in free flight.

Please review the information in these two threads:
