    I've traveled on commercial airlines and brought my bird as a carry on. No problems with TSA. Can anyone tell me if there is anything I should be concerned about in customs in and out of Mexico?

    I took mine through Cancun in September with no problems at all, and I stupidly left a battery in it!

    No problem at all, you can declare it (if asked) as a camera or toy or both, regulations are pretty loose here for that sort of thing.

    yes definitely a good idea to remove the battery when traveling on a plane.

    Have taken mine to Cabo with no problems. Just lots of interest over it.

    I took mine to Puerto Villarta and customs pull me into an office and questioned me about it. They saw it via X-ray, they told me it wasn't on their approved personal item list, I had to pay $75 duty to get it back, which at that moment I was thrilled to pay.
