A number of protected bird species make their home at the Bali Bird Park in Singapdu, in the Gianyar regency of Bali.

Quoted in Bisnis Bali, Nick Blackbeard, the Managing Director of the Bali Bird Park said: “Dedicated to the conservation of endangered birds, we operate a comprehensive breeding program. This is proven by our success in propagating Bali’s rarest bird the Jalak Bali.”

The Jalak Bali, also know as the Bali Starling or Bali Myna (Leucopsar rothschildi) is the mascot of Bali and boasts a white tail, a long, drooping crest and black tops on the wings and tails. Particularly distinctive are the blue bare skin surrounding its eyes, grayish legs and a yellow beak.

The Bali Bird Park occupies a 2-hectare site attracting hundreds of visitors each day to it magnificent exhibit of more than 250 species spread across 1,000 birds.

The intelligent use of native foliage, waterfalls, ponds and walk-through cages gives every impression that visitors are in a tropical jungle rich with bird life.

“Visitors have the opportunity of encountering rare and extraordinary birds from every corner of the globe,” said Blackbeard.

Nick described how former rice fields were converted into a bird reserve with the help of experts from around the world, resulting in a habitant for the birds closely resembling the bird’s native surroundings.

Visitors walking its shaded tropical paths can see Jalak Bali, Macaws, Hornbills, Australian Pelicans, Birds of Paradise, Toucans, Owls, Flamingos, Cassowaries and Komodo Dragons.

The presence of the Komodo dragon in the Bali Bird Park is explained by Nick who said that evolution studies shows birds descended from reptiles, inspiring the Park's choice to adopt the Komodo as a mascot of the Park.

Several of the birds at the Park have been enriched, training them to welcome guests in a variety of languages.

Opportunities are also given for guest to hold and be photographed with rare birds.

The Bali Bird Park was first established in 1994.
