If there are two women, this one has two pairs and this one has two birds and one bird flew from this woman's [pair] to the other woman's [pair] , it invalidates one bird by its leaving. If it then returned [to its original pair] it invalidates one by returning. If it flew back and forth multiple times it does not cause further invalidation since even if they are mixed up, there are at least two [valid] birds remaining.
