Bali Bird Park
Bali Bird Park is located in Singapadu, near Celuk. Home to 250 different species of birds, it is the biggest and the best bird park in all of Bali. Though it features a fantastic collection of Indonesian birds, it also boasts some amazing species from Africa and South America. In its two hectares of botanical gardens, the park is a sanctuary for nearly 1000 individual birds and an amazing display of flora: more than 2000 tropical plants, including 50 varieties of palms alone. It's no surprise that it attracts swarms of gorgeous butterflies.
The park is divided into sections representing and recreating various Indonesian habitats, with their native birds and plants. You'll see endangered bird species of birds from Bali such as the Bali Starling, the fantastic Java hawk, serpent eagles, parrots, flamingos, storks, pelicans, green peafowl, Asian pied hornbills, Javan kingfishers and exotic birds from Papua. In the East Indonesia section you can meet not just birds, but the extraordinary Komodo Dragon as well - a direct descendant of the dinosaurs, rarely seen in captivity.
The Park's approach to displaying rare and tropical birds has shifted from traditional exhibits to showcasing mixed species in their natural habitats. The complex incorporates breeding, research and veterinary facilities and has a high success rate in the reproduction of exotic birds.
There are many native Indonesian, Australian and South American species of parrots bred in the park. Look for the White Cockatoo from the Molucca Islands, known to live up to 80 years. In recent times their numbers in the wild have significantly decreased due to habitat loss and illegal trapping. Palm Cockatoos are known for the 20 or more different kinds of vocalisations they make, including a 'hello' call that is surprisingly human-like. Listen too for the very distinctive, loud call of the endangered Bali Starling.
The park and restaurant are open from 09.00 until 17:30 daily.
