    Jurong Bird Park

    The Jurong Bird Park is worth a visit for all overseas visitors. In this sprawling bird park you will see parrots, macaws, pelicans, vultures, eagles and ostriches. There is also a tram ride for those who do not want to walk the long distance. There are cafes and restaurants for visitors. In the penguin section, the birds are kept in an air-conditioned room with ice added to the water. There is also a man-made waterfall.

    A day of color at Jurong Bird Park

    A Singapore experience wouldn’t be complete without a day at the Jurong Bird Park. There, we saw all kinds of birds one couldn’t ever imagine. We first took a monorail ride around the park before we explored the area on our own. At least, that already gave us an idea on how big the place was.

    Birds of prey were inside cages while the ones that thrive in wetlands are kept in the open. Try to catch the birds show at the Pools Amphitheatre and the pelicans’ feeding time.

    Don’t miss:
    To feed the lories at the Lory Loft. They are my favorites! You don’t have to go after them. They’ll come to you when they see the cup in your hand.

    Hey, you should know that:
    You’ll remember Happy Feet when you see the Penguins.

    FLOWER'S AT JURONG BIRD PARK

    by balhannah Written Nov 19, 2011

    On arriving at Jurong Bird Park Entrance, I couldn't believe how beautiful they had made the Entrance way to the Admission booths.
    At the very start, there a Macaw's sitting on a perch where you can have your photo taken by another family member for FREE.
    Then, it's time to walk to the entrance underneath arches that are loaded with Orchid's in bloom, it was absolutely stunning! If you don't have a chance to see the Orchid's at the Botanical garden's, then these would be the next best.
    Once inside, the garden's are well maintained, and there were more lovely Flower display's.
    They really know how to make a place pleasing on the eye's!

    ANIMAL & BIRD ENCOUNTER'S

    This was another area that I think children would love, even Adult's.

    It is a sale's pitch.....Have your photo taken with a Bird or Animal for a price, but it is done nicely.
    There was nothing to stop me or you from taking photo's of the Bird's or Animal's on display, in my case, it was Bird's.

    There were big, brightly coloured 'fake' Bird's sitting on the branches and the real ones. Of course, the bright Macaw was featured, and so were some Australian Parrot's.

    Admission is free
    There are daily show's from 12 - 5.30pm

    12pm - 12.15pm Close encounter with green iguanas, Burmese rock pythons and water monitor lizards.
    12.30pm - 12.50pm Primate Encounters - pig tailed macaques.
    2pm - 2.15pm Lorikeet Feeding at the Bird Aviary
    3pm - 3.15pm Close Encounters with Pig Tailed Macaques
    3.30pm - 4pm Bird Encounters Engage in conversation with our incredible talking birds!
    4.30pm - 4.45pm Close Encounters with Parrots Learn all about the diet and behaviours of our multi-colored parrots.
    5pm - 5.30pm Multi Animal Encounters at Amphitheatre Meet and greet special guests such as pig tailed macaques, parrots, hawks or perhaps an eagle, python, or Siberian husky.

    Wether you have kids in tow or not, so long as you have a day to spare on your trip to Singapore, this is a must see.

    At first, I didn't want to go to a bird park... I didn't want to see birds caged up and all. It took me 5 trips to Singapore before I finally agreed to check it out. BOY, was I wrong. The entire park is a dome! You rarely see cages (only the birds of prey ones are caged...else they'll eat the tinier birds).

    I was in a photographers paradise. And I'm just an amateur one! (see my pictures to see why I love my 'models' for the day).

    My favorite part here is the Lory bird sanctuary. For a dollar, you can feed these birds. They'll hop onto your hand or arm and feed from the plastic cup given to you. I had one bird in particular that took a fancy to me and stayed ON me the entire 30minutes I was in the Lory place. I believe he wanted my hair accessories. :) Literally, I had tourists all over laughing and smiling at me as I tried to shake my surprise passenger loose.

    I was also fortunate at the time to witness the flamingoes being set loose... it was a once in a lifetime thing they did during the Chinese New Year. They had never done it before so I got to be with the flamingoes during their Flamingo parade.

    You can spend half a day or the entire day here. Is it worth it? Yes. :)

    **if you'll wait for a taxi, might as well call one over (see the numbers at the taxi line). Rarely do taxis go there so you might end up with a bit of a wait. Pay the extra flag down /call fee. It's worth it. :)

    This very entertaining and informative show is a MUST SEE in my opinion.

    My favorite was the Macaws playing Basketball, they are so clever!
    Birds fly over the audiences heads an onto awaiting out stretched arms. They do all sorts of clever tricks.
    Amigo, is another clever Bird, he sings a local folk song!

    Every Bird that is in the show is clever.......The Flamingos, Macaws, Pelicans, Cockatoo's, Hornbill's and more, all do a fantastic performance.

    The Ampitheatre holds 2000 people, make sure you are a little early, as the seating fills quickly.

    Meet a HORNBILL @ Jurong Bird Park.

    by balhannah Updated Feb 28, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Bird Park is the THE BEST.
    It is so well done, with lots of huge avaries where the birds and you feel like you are out in the open.
    There is a big display of Hornbills and Toucans, these are in large cages.
    At 11.45am, the Keeper brings a large Hornbill out of its cage and gives a talk. You get up very close to it, and are allowed to touch and take photos.

    Amazing birds

    Flamingos

    If you are like me and really like to watch animals, the Jurong Bird park is something for you! There are more than 8000 birds, of 600 different spieces.

    So yes, you'll most probably be able to find your favourite here.

    The park is huge, and it's more or less a full day-project to go through it. As I really like to take photos of animals this was little paradise for me. In the beginning I snapped tens of photos at every little bird, but after a while I realised I would need a couple of hundred new memory cards if I were to continue like that...

    Coolest I must say are the Flamingo Lake and the Pelican Cove. Unique photo possibilities! Every hour there are new shows around the park, some good, some less entertaining. The talking parrot show I would said is more for kids, while the birds of prey show was really impressive. Despite a whole group of the birds of prey felt they were a bit too big stars to attend the show, and just flew away... :D

    But don't miss it, really cool feeling when these huge birds are flying just above your head. Try to snap a good photo there if you can, not as easy as you might think...

    Don't miss the penguins either, they are really cute!

    The park is open daily 8.30 until 6pm, less people there during the weekdays of course. Admission is 18 SGD (9 euro), well worth the money!
    Half price for kids (3-12 years old).
    There is also a train (5 SGD) that one can take, but as with the Zoo train it's just stupid, as you won't be able to see anything properly when you're rushing by.

    The park is located a bit outside the city center, so easiest way to get there is by car. But there are also buses that pick you up in both the city center (outside different hotels and shopping malls, check the home page of the park) and at the Singapore Zoo.

    Don't really understand how anyone would be able to have energy to see both the zoo and the bird park in one day...?

    As with the Zoo you can also have breakfast here. But instead of with the orangutans here you'll eat with the pelicans.

    Jurong Bird Park

    I had a lot of fun in Jurong Bird Park's Bird's and Buddies Show at 11 am everyday. It gives you a snap shot of all the birds (falcon, macau, parrots, hornbills etc) in this world-class aviary. You can see birds flying through hoops, playing table basketball and singing "Happy Birthday." It's a fun treat for kids and adults like you and me. You can also feed the birds in the walk-in aviary.

    Don't miss the photo-opportunity with the birds at the end of the 45-minute show.

    Purchase the Hopper Pass $40 and you can visit Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari and the Zoo at discounted rates than if you purchased entrance to these parks separately.

    Meet the Lorikeets @ Jurong Bird Park

    Lorikeets are found in Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Lory Loft is another huge Aviary with an elevated board walk and suspension bridges, so that you are up there with the Birds.
    I have dozens of Lorikeets that are at my front door and in other parts of my garden, but didn"t realize that there were so many different varietes of them.
    They are so colourful and very noisy!

    The children and Adults love to feed them, and you can for $1 for a cup of nectar.
    You can do this anytime between 9 - 5 pm.

    It was nice to sit here in the cafe and enjoy a cuppa.

    Meet the BEE EATERS @ Jurong Bird Park

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waterfall Avairy is the WORLD'S LARGEST WALK THROUGH AVAIRY. Its set in beautifuly landscaped gardens, complete with a waterfall. Over 1,500 birds call this home.

    You can buy food for $1, and feed the Bee Eaters and Starlings at 10.30am & 2.30pm. These are really pretty birds, they flutter around you and sit on your arm, or just whiz in and take food directly from the cup.

    A cheap, great experience.

    A bird park is a bird park, you say. Well, actually no. You will see a waterfall in the park, you will ride on a monorail and before you know it - you'll feel like you're in the middle of the jungle. The parrots are well trained. There's even a picnic ground. Quite nice...

    The Jurong BirdPark is definitely not a sight, that you can cover in an hour or two. Plan enough time to enjoy all the shows, including being there on time to get a good seat in the shadow! Also take your time to walk around the whole Park. It is really nice, also if you are not that much into birds. Great place for kids, too.

    If you are flying in with SQ, make sure you keep and bring your boarding pass. You get a discount!
