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.
