Just recently saw this and was thinking ' Oh i can hear birds singing in a garden'...Oh no..not in HK.. the poor birds are stuffed into tiny cages..and i mean really tiny...i took pictures of lots of birds stuffed into one cage hidden under other birds...this is just exploitation of beautiful creatures by uninformed/uneducated people who think it's fine to keep birds like this..It's horrific ..but what's more horrific are the pets shops nearby on Peace Avenue and nearby streets where i saw the most beautiful dogs and cats kept in tiny cages crying pitifully...What is wrong with these people!
The SPCA has a campaign to try to end this but where there's demand!..HK needs to know that tourists wont tolerant this. Also the AFCD close the Bird garden regularly due to Bird Flu...Poor Birds i'm not surprised they get ill.

This has to be the saddest place i have ever been too. Looking at those beautiful birds locked in cages had me in tears. I looked straight into the eyes of the most beautiful Toucan who was locked in a cage of less than a meter sq. The Hong Kong authorities need to close this place down and let all the birds free. Sad Sad Sad please avoid.

Issues of bird welfare aside, this was, years ago, an interesting place to visit. Now it's all just a little sad. A few stalls selling bird feed and cages, and a mere handful of stalls selling a few birds in cages.Possibly worth a wander if you're in the area, but don't head there specifically for the market.

Very dim and hardly any actual birds there. It was mostly people selling cages and fake birds. If you're in the area it's worth walking through, otherwise don't bother.

The bird garden is just a small stretch at the end of flower market. However, you get to see different birds. But the feeling of the place is gloomy. No buyers for a long time I guess.
