Hong Kong bird market

March 28th, 2009

The bird market is predictably all about birds. Birds and their related paraphernalia are sold here, but bird owners also bring their own birds from home to hang out with their avian mates. There are beautiful wooden cages hanging from the trees and perched on top of every flat surface available, the noise is just unbelievable. It was really sad to see some of the bigger birds for sale in tiny cages though.

    This reminds me of a market I went to while in Thailand… It was the biggest open market I’d ever seen and there was a whole section dedicated to pets and animals. It wasn’t as bright and cheerful looking as this, unfortunately!
