It's very much worth to spend a day in this park. Make sure you don't miss the Birds of Prey show at 1000 at the Fuji Hawk Walk. It's very entertaining apart from educational. Also make sure that you see the largest man made waterfall in the world. It's in the waterfall aviary at the furthest North of the park.
If you enjoy watching birds-this is a great diversion in Singapore. There are lots of birds from all over the world that make their home here. My favorite part is the large aviary-which has the world's largest man made waterfall.
In the aviary, birds fly freely. You can even put some mealworms in your hand (for a small fee) and watch as the birds swoop down and grab them.

One of Asia Pacific's largest and most impressive bird parks, Jurong BirdPark offers visitors an experience that is entertaining as well as educational. Its landscaped environment is home to over 8,000 birds from 600 species, displayed in huge enclosures. The bird shows at the Pools Amphitheatre featuring flamingoes, macaws, hornbills and cockatoos are both spectacular and funny, and recommended particularly for children. To watch magnificent birds of prey in action, catch the 'Fuji World of Hawks' show!
The Penguin Parade enclosure, in a re-created Antarctic setting, houses more than 200 penguins of five species. Within the Penguin Parade enclosure, there are some 50 other sea-birds such as the inca terns and puffins. Another highlight is the colourful Hornbills and Toucans exhibit, the world's largest collection of Southeast Asian Hornbills.
The Southeast Asian Birds Aviary houses in its 24 individual aviaries and a main walk-in aviary, more than 100 species of birds from the equatorial jungles of Southeast Asia. The birds' natural equatorial habitat is re-created within this exhibit, including simulated tropical thunderstorms everyday at noon. Another walk-in aviary not to be missed is the Waterfall Aviary, home to more than 1,500 free-flying African birds.
The BirdPark added yet another feather to its cap with the addition of The Riverine - a simulated natural freshwater river habitat featuring over 20 species of ducks, fishes and turtles.
The best way to start a tour of the BirdPark is to board the modern, air-conditioned panorail system. Its route covers the entire Park, providing excellent elevated views of the various exhibits.

While strolling along the foreshore heading from the Merlion to Boat Quay, Anne and I stumbled upon this big bronze bird. The plaque advises that the United Overseas Bank commisioned an artist I have never heard of (Botero) to create this huge sculpture symbolising hospitality and friendship.
Even if you`re not into birds, you`ll have an enjoyable time at Jurong Bird Park. I was half-hearted about going but it ended up being a great day out.
There are numerous shows and demonstrations throughout the day. The two most popular shows are the "Birds of Prey Show" (10am and 4pm) and the "All Star Bird Show" (11am and 3pm).
One thing not be missed is the "Lory Loft", where you can walk out on a platform among 1000 lorikeets inside a massive aviary. There`s a neat little cafe beside it too....

Visit the largest bird park in SEA. a visit to the Waterfall Aviary is a must. it is the world's highest man-made waterfall at 30 metres. Do visit the Penguine Parade and the Birdshows. I spend the whole day there with my family and we had lots of fun.
see my pics taken at Jurong Bird Park:
Night Safari (take the train and alight at Choa chu Kang MRT Station and transfer to bus 171 or 927
It was too dark to take any pictures at the Nite Safari. So just go there and enjoy the environment and see the Show.
If you're a bird lover or even just curious, defintely check out Jurong Bird Park. A little out of the way of the city center, but well worth it!
They have birds from all over the world, and of course the Waterfall Aviary is not one to miss. Like the zoo, the animals here are very well taken care of and healthy creatures. Great for kids and adults alike. Do be warned though, that the individuals who feed the animals wear while polo shirts, so if you wear one (like Stephen did by accident) you may get some rather persistant attention.
If you enjoy the sights and sounds of birds this is a must see activity. The Bird park contains some beautiful trails and wonderful birds from around the world. The birds are well described and there is enough staff around to ask questions.
Try and catch some of the shows. They are not natural but do demonstrate the skills of well trained birds. They are also fun.
If you can arrive early for the Breakfast with the Birds. The prices are not too bad, the food is good, and the avian company is wonderful.
Asia Pacific's largest and most impressive bird park, the Jurong BirdPark is home to over 8,000 birds from 600 species around the world.
So far, my family has visited it around 3 times, all of which was great (especially for the kids)!!
There are a lot of shows to watch, like the "Fuji World of Hawks Show", featuring more than 50 birds!
Jurong BirdPark is a 20.2 hectare open-concept park. It is the largest in the Asia Pacific and one of the finest bird parks in the world. Its collection of more than 8,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia and the more exotic and colourful tropical birds.
Not your conventional Aviary, this is set up like a zoo and is nearly as extensive as all but your most major zoos. It has many bird shows and chances to interact with the residents.
