Caged beauties, but cultural norm

I find this to be a great stop while walking in the flower market. Charming old men walking around with pet birds. If I understood correctly if you arrive in the morning you can watch them feed the birds with chop sticks, looked like crickets to me. Towards the back of the park seems to be a bird market. Lots...

I visited the Bird Gardens on a Saturday late morning.It might have been too early though as there was not much to see. A few bird cages were hanging with interesting looking birds and a few stalls were selling cages and bird seed. I would only visit again if I have a lot of time to spare.

Unfortunately these beautiful birds are in cages or leashes, but this seems to be a cultural norm as a lot of older men with their birds will come to the park and sit and hang out. It's kind of like showcasing their beautiful prized possession. There are some birds for sale, you can watch some older ladies making beautiful cages,... More

Took a taxi so we were sure we`d find this intriguing location which was off the main tourist trail. The park was redeveloped in 1997 after closing the original bird garden, As we entered, the sound of the birds filled the air. Rows of traders displayed their birds in courtyards surrounded by lush trees and pretty flowers. These birds were... More

It was a mix feeling to see many small, beautiful and cute birds locked up inside beautiful cages. It was weird that in a bird garden, many birds were caged! But who know? In this situation, these cages maybe the only safest places for these small birds! If you plan to visit the flower market you should have a quick... More

The bird garden has been nicely landscaped in a traditional classic Chinese style and is interesting to walk through if you are nearby visiting the much better neighbouring flower market - however, enter with caution, the area has for a long been been renowned for being at the centre of illegal sales of rare birds. This place tends to be... More

This is a place where birds are in cages. Some of them in very small and/ or crowded cages. If you want to see birds flying around, go to the free walk through aviary in Hong Kong park. However, if you want to see ornamental bird cages and sacks of live grasshoppers and worms for bird food, this is the... More

Understandable, this is a bird market and not an aviary but still it was sad to see some of the birds cramped in small cages. Still, an interesting sight with a variety of feathery creatures and their foods (including bags with live locust). Wish it would be a little more bird friendly though.

Where else? This was fascinating and the birds sadly in small cages but obviously prized. Clearly not enough meat on them for eating! Old men were tolerant of tourists gazing at them.

Seeing so many birds in such tiny spaces is appalling. Each one had at most a small decorative cage as its home while many shared only slightly bigger cages with up to dozens of other birds. Some were in narrow boxes barely taller than themselves. Very few were able to shelter themselves from sunlight. I saw many birds with overgrown... More
