Caged birds have long been a favourite pet for many Chinese people.
And with vast numbers of unemployed workers looking for odd jobs to bring home much needed funds, many have turned to raising birds.
Though many breed the birds purely for financial gain, some take great pains to train their birds — just for the love of it.
With an estimated 300-thousand bird breeders in Beijing alone, the city’s bird markets are getting more and more crowded.
On a typical weekend, throngs of people invade the Jade Dragonfly Bridge market to trade in the feathered pets.
If the crowds of people seem dense, the crowds of birds in small cages are even more tightly packed.
Hundreds of thousands of brightly-coloured birds compete for space in tiny metal prisons.
Though most deal in birds to make money, some do it purely out of passion.
50 year-old Mr Zhuang is one such person.
Mr Zhuang carefully scrutinizes the parrots on offer in this crowded market, determined not to go home with an empty cage.
But if most birds are doomed to crowded lives in tiny cages — or, at best, lonely existences with no chance to fly — Mr Zhuang has a happier fate in mind for his parrots.
Most people simply train their birds to sing.
But Mr Zhuang has trained his twenty birds to fly away — and come home at the call of a whistle.
Everyday, the cage is opened and the parrots go off for an afternoon fly.
Some simply enjoy a nice perch on a tree.
Others brave the skies and even go for a fly with feathered friends of different species.
Feeding over twenty birds is something of a financial burden.
But Mr Zhuang feels it is well worth it.
“I need to find something interesting in my life. And when these birds fly in the sky, my heart lightens. I can forget all of my worries and unhappiness.”
SUPER CAPTION: Zhuang Kuiqing, parrot trainer
Mr Zhuang may wish he could fly over the grey roofs of his run-down neighborhood himself.
But when he sees his parrots soar above his home, he can be content just to watch.

EXOTIC BIRDS FOR SALE
Sa isang lugar sa Maynila, may lihim daw na pilit na ikinukubli. May bodega raw kasi rito na bagsakan ng mga ibon na kabilang na sa endangered at threatened species. Ayon sa impormante ng Imbestigador, galing sa kagubatan ng Pilipinas at mayroon ding imported pa na ibinebentang mga ibon.
Bawal ang pagbebenta ng mga ibon na kabilang sa listahan ng endangered at threatened species. Kaya naman sa pinagsanib na puwersa ng Imbestigador, National Bureau of Investigation, at Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau ng DENR, isang operation ang ikinasa para sagipin ang mga ibon at panagutin ang may sala.
Mabilis na nakarating sa Imbestigador ang sumbong ni “Joy”, ina ng pitong taong gulang na si “Michael”. Makailang beses daw kasing pagbuhatan ng kamay ang kanyang anak ng mismong ama nito. Tinutukan pa raw ng kutsilyo at pinukpok ng hanger si “Michael” ng amang Pakistani.
Handa nang ipaglaban ni “Joy” ang karapatan ng kanyang anak na makalaya sa di-umano’y pang-aabuso kung kaya sa Imbestigador siya humingi ng saklolo. Nang malaman ng City Social Welfare and Development Office ng Antipolo at ng pulisya ang kuwento, agad silang umaksyon para sagipin si “Michael”.
Abangan ang maaksyon at madamdaming mga tagpo ngayong Sabado!
Nakilala ni Dina si Joy bilang isang secretary diumano ng nagngangalang Atty. Baldoza. Si Attorney daw ang tutulong kay Dina para mawakasan na ang problema niya sa lupa. Pero si Joy, nagduda matapos na hindi ipakita sa kanya ang mga papeles ni inaayos daw nitong si Atty. Baldoza. Kaya naman nag ala Imbestigador siya at dito niya nalaman na si Attorney, hindi pala tunay na abogado!
Wawakasan na ng Imbestigador ang pagpapangap ng pekeng abogado. At ang magiging taga- usig niya sa kakaharaping kaso ay ang mga tauhan ng Criminal Investigation and Detection Division ng Camp Crame.
