Just came back from a visit to Jakarta. An interesting place where bird keeping seems to be a part of their culture/lifestyle. Any species is game there - from sunbirds to huge ugly crows to rare birds like the Bali Myna and bird of paradise.

A scene of the bird market in Pramuka;

Souvenirs ready to be shipped home;

A lone Straw-headed Bulbul, probably the most expensive songbird in Indonesia not taking into consideration champion competition birds of other species.
