Right about now your thinking a shower would be nice. Get to the South-East Asian Bird Aviary before noon. There is a rainforest thunderstorm there every day at 12.00. You will hear thunder then watch it rain. There are over 100 species of birds in this aviary.
If you are starting to get a little warm from being out in the heat for hours, it is a good time to see the Penguins. There are over 200 penguins in the air conditioned exibit. If you are lucky you will get there around feeding time.
One of the highlights in the park is the world's largest collection of Southeast Asian Hornbills. I have been to many places looking for these birds and here they are all in one place. These birds are in cages not in the open aviary.
Get off the monorail at the walk-in aviary. It has over 1500 birds all flying around in the trees, eating some fruit that has been put there for them, some are building nest. You will be amazed.
Have you ever seen a duck swimming underwater? Ever wonder what they do when they disappear? Be sure to check out the duck tank exibits.
Now that you have gotten cooled off its time to go shopping for some souvenirs but first you much have a look at the beautiful pink Flamingos.
There are bird shows through out the day. One of the best is the Birds of Prey in which trained birds really put on a show.
While you are in this area be sure to check out the South American Toucans. A beautiful bird
not to miss.
Hurry, it is almost time to watch the bird feeding. They seem to know what time it is and they are already showing up.
Within the grounds of the walk-in aviary, you will find a 30m man-made water fall. Stand nearby and cool off a bit. There is a lot more to see!
As you enter into the park you will hear lots of noises. This is the parrots, all there to greet you. There are many beautiful birds there. Some you can hold and have your picture taken with.
