Yesterday I launched my new series designed to help people find mini-trips to appreciate birds closer to home or on more conventional trips to beach resorts such as Bali. All the information on Bali Bird Park is in the first post but I took so many photos, I thought I would follow up with more here so I don’t make the informative post harder to load.
When you first enter, you will see lush gardens and several birds on stands or wandering about the park. They have photographers there if you want to have a photo posing with the birds.
Then you will pass by some large aviaries and habitats featuring various Indonesian birds and a few from Australia. You can also see some baby Eclectus Parrots that are being handreared.
Next there is a huge walk-in aviary featuring birds from Bali. You can see the highly endangered Bali Starling here but they are kept separate for their security. They are in a breeding program trying to increase the numbers.
Then you will come to a free-flight show that they do around 11am featuring both birds of prey and some dazzling macaws. This was one of the times my camera was fogging up due to the humidity and intermittant rain.
Then you will come to the Papua Rainforest Aviary whose photos I featured yesterday.
As you leave Bali Bird Park, you will see a well-stocked gift shop with bird themed paintings, jewelry and knick-knacks. I bought out the bird bling when we were there but they have probably replenished it by now………they do take credit cards!
