This bird is one of many in Beijing Language and Culture University's Bird Garden. Tying birds into cages like this one is a traditional practice. Many of the birds are bright colors with special features. This man relaxes with his smart phone next to them. Amazed at how close I could be to the bird, this feeling quickly dissipated into sympathy for the animal's plight. The man blew smoke at the bird and asked, "Cute, huh?"
