Can birds live in glass cages?

Also to know is, do birds like being in cages?
"A bird [in the wild] would be flying miles and miles a day, but as a pet, a bird is alone and in a cage." (Of course, there are exceptions, and some owners do their very best to care for their pet birds.) Due to the stress of confinement, they display abnormal behaviors, like biting on bars or pacing their cages.
Similarly, why birds should not be kept in cages? Birds ought not to be kept in enclosures for the well-being and cleanliness of creatures and their proprietors. Likewise, the creature ends up noticeably pushed and it has been detracted from its common living space.
Just so, is it cruel to keep pet birds in cages?
While providing flight cages for pet birds may be the ideal, it is not practical for most people, and I do not believe it is necessary for the bird to live a full and "happy" life. Yes, keeping anything in a cage is cruel.
Do birds get bored in cages?
Birds can definitely end up feeling bored, but it depends on how smart the bird is. With more intelligent birds, like parrots, if they get bored enough in captivity, they will actually start to harm themselves by pulling out their own feathers. They always need new ways to play, new things to discover.
