I have a question about the ingredient "small Thai bird chiles" on the recipe "Chocolate Thai Green Curry Cake" from raspberryeggplant. What are they, and what can substitute?

Hot little chiles. I'd substitute another hot chile or some chile powder.

I think a serrano would work - I would look for a fresh substitute though - chili powder is smokier - different sort of flavor
If you can't find Thai bird chiles, you can use serranos or any other similar small, long, hot peppers (but not habaneros!)
Chile powder is NOT a good substitute - fresh chiles have a very different flavor.
They're incredibly hot, tiny chilies that look like a bird's eye. They usually sell them in Asian grocery stores, or in an international supermarket that caters to a series of nationalities. You can also mail order them for cheap, and they stand up to shipping without a problem.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
