Dempsey Road birdman

If you guessed parrots, you are dead wrong. Interestingly enough, the shop signage poses a strange backdrop to the entire scene. I took this picture at Dempsey Road, just outside a carpet merchant shop, where the owners train and rear these parrots. It’s interesting that the parrots are not chained in any way to the branches of their stands – they are just perched there obediently as the owner speaks to them as if they were humans like us.
