Bali Bird Park, in Batubulan, Gianyar, Bali is an exceptional bird park. It claims to have more than a thousand tropical birds, categorized into 250 species. The impressive number of bird species makes it one of the most diverse bird parks in Asia.
Not limited to Indonesian tropical birds only, the park’s collection also extends into foreign species from South Africa and South America. Aside from being a recreational place, the park also takes a crucial role as a conservatory. The endangered Bali Starling is one of the birds on a breeding program here.
Breeding Bali Starling has always been difficult, but the park managed to successfully do it. The park is also distinguished for having the largest collection of Papuan Paradise Bird in the world. Bali Bird Park is both an educational and a fun destination to visit, especially for families.
There are seven zones to explore, according to the birds’ natural habitat: Java, Borneo, Sumatra, Bali, Papua, South Africa, and South America. Apart from observing, visitors can participate in several activities with the animal here. Since twenty years ago, Bali Bird Park has been living up to its motto: 1000 birds, 250 species, 1 great day out.
Meet Thousands of Birds
Spare two hours to explore every zone’s nooks and crannies—or more because two hours won’t be enough. Enjoy the performance of Bali starlings as their choir fills the Bali Zone. A flying show is conducted at the Java zone. Where magnificent Javan eagles swoop down from the sky to catch their prey.
No need to venture far into Papuan Jungle, because Birds of Paradise are perching happily on branches at Papua Zone. South Africa and the South America zone give a chance for visitors to travel out of Indonesia. Meet Hyacinth Macaw, the giant of all parrots in the world—his home here is at South America Zone.
Birds from African Savannah such as flamingo can be seen circling a small pool, standing gracefully with one leg. The African Zone also has a species of talented parrots, African Grey Parrots. They are famous for their talent mimicking the human voice well.
To conclude the exploration, go inside the owl house. The owl house is built with an architecture of a traditional Torajan house. It serves as a quiet habitat for nocturnal birds. Barred eagle-owl (Bubo sumatranus), an endemic owl from Sumatra, will astonish visitors with its unique ears as well as its mysterious appearance.
Feeding Experience in Bali Bird Park
Get even closer with the bird by feeding them. The lorry is a smaller kind of parrot, an Australasian bird who mainly lives on the eastern side of Indonesia. Not only that lorries are beautiful with their colorful feathers, but they are also super friendly.
Lorries will enthusiastically swarm around visitors and land on the hand if there’s food on it. The pelicans will want some feeding too. The large bird will flap their imposing beak, anticipating some fishes. Throw a fish at them, and they will pick it up in a precise manner with its large pointy beak.
They then raise their head facing the sky, gobble up and down as they balance the fish inside the beak, struggling to swallow. A peculiar way to eat, but beautiful and amusing to watch.
The Star Of All Bird
Some birds are born a star. They are beautiful, smart, and friendly. Meet Anna-Maria, the park’s famous Black Palm Cockatoo. She has her own show, where she meets her “fans”.
