Retired residents and their pet birds enjoy the crisp spring weather in Bozhou, East China’s Anhui Province on March 15, 2017. Taking a leisurely walk along the roadside with both their feathered and unfeathered friends is part of the daily routine of many elderly men across China. The hobby of walking pet birds has been popular in China since the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and the tradition continues to bring pleasure to people today.
