    Derrick,
    Do you not have a fenced in area he can stay in? The wire idea doesn't sound too good to me BUT if you want to keep him from flying up high, you will have to clip ONE wing. Clipping one keeps him off balance so he can't fly. I'll see if I can find a link to directions for you. Here ya go:
