Bird habitat

Dear Editor:After reading your wonderful paper today, I realized that people are not the only ones being discriminated against in Downey - so are our pets. Downey has an area at Rio San Gabriel Park where people can take their dogs to socialize, but I own two birds that are just as dear to me as many people's dogs are to them. My birds are very social parrots, and I have no place that I can take them to socialize with other birds as well as humans. I am an artist and would be happy to draw up some designs for a small bird habitat in Downey where people could take their sociable birds so that they can get the attention that has eluded them in favor of dogs. I feel that it is very unfair to favor one type of pet over another, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. Birds are pets too! Yunhee Chae Downey
