East Asian short film about a Mynah Bird

From what I recall Channel 4 in the UK screened this 30min film more than once in the 80s. I believe it was in Cantonese and was listed as “The Mynah Bird”. A group of kids has a pet mynah bird called “Saw Gaw” that they love. Saw Gaw dies and they are bought a replacement, but they don’t want it as “We want Saw Gaw”. But eventually they learn to love the new bird for itself. The thing is even though I am sure of the title I cannot find any reference to this film by searching for the plot, so perhaps it went under another title. I’m also wondering if I was correct in thinking it was in Cantonese. Any ideas?
