Taking birds for walks
This is not a custom but thought I would share with you what funny little people these are.
Walking around CQ you will come across many times people taking their birds for walks. Not sure when this originated but they carry their bird cages down to the the park where they hang them on trees for an hour or two.
I guess this is a nice idea - gives the bird a chance to get out of the house. It is quite amusing to see but gives you an idea of how kind-hearted Chongqing people are.
