How do you feel about birds

Answer 1: I’ve always had a fascination for birds. I think I inherited this interest from my dad. He can identify any kind of bird just by the sound of their song. I’m no expert compared to him but i’m still very fond of all kinds of birds. 

Answer 2: To me, birds are beautiful and adorable creatures that should be well-protected and loved. My memories came flooding back whenever mentioning about birds. Back then, my grandparents used to raise some birds. Their chirp sounds are really interesting which often woke me up every morning. It’s indeed a fabulous way to start a new day, isn’t it?

How do Vietnamese people feel about birds

I think songbirds are very special for Vietnamese people because they are often kept as pets, and hung in cages outside shops and houses. Of course, some other birds such as chickens and ducks are eaten here, so perhaps the Vietnamese people’s relationship with birds is somewhat conflicted, as is the case the world over. 

Are there many birds near your home? 

These days, I live in the city so there’s a lack of wildlife in general, including birds. However, sometimes I do see pigeons, sparrows and other small migratory birds. I am also woken up daily by a the sound of a cockerel crowing nearby, although I’ve never seen it. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind if it met a sticky end.

Have you seen many different kinds of birds?

Answer 1: Yes, where I lived previously I would frequently see a whole host of different birds, from small birds such as finches, martens, sparrows, swallows and starlings, to birds of prey like buzzards, sparrow hawks, and even owls

Answer 2: Well, I have only seen a few, I am not very much of a birdwatcher. The ones I have seen are pretty common, like pigeons and sparrows. I haven’t caught sight of any exotic breeds in the real life, except for those on the television, particularly Discovery channel.
