Hundreds of pet birds fly free at event next to river in Bangkok

Hundreds of pet birds flew free at an event next to the river in Bangkok, Thailand.

Caws and screeches filled the air as flocks of parrots, love birds, and cockatoos took to the skies at a riverfront mall in the Thai capital on November 12.

The birds circled around the open-air facility, perching on lamp posts and mingling with their kind as their owners took photos of the colourful spectacle.

New and veteran bird owners were invited to the gathering, where they can share tips on how to raise their beloved avian companions. Prizes were also handed out to lucky visitors by the event organiser.
