This research was conducted in March-April 2021. The method used was direct observation (recording) and conducting interviews with bird shop owners. The data obtained were analyzed using qualitative descriptive analysis. Based on the results of research that has been done, the number of shops in Pontianak Cityis19 bird shops.
