The Phuket Bird Park is a relatively novel attraction, only opened inwards 2013 similar the nearby Phuket Botanic Garden which has the same owner. We visited the botanic garden recently, too my household unit of measurement had already seen the plane green (they went when I was working, how dare they!) – their feedback was positive, too I had been pushing them to see over again for a few weeks, but it’s difficult to respect time, every bit the kids produce extra classes at the weekend too music too late they get got locomote large fans of the Phuket Wake Park. So final Sabbatum nosotros decided to locomote to the Phuket Bird Park inwards the morning time earlier music class. The plane park, aside from lots of birds to human face at, has a “bird show” three times per twenty-four hr menstruum at 10:30am, 1:30pm too 3:30pm, thus nosotros aimed for the 10:30am show. I respect amongst many tourist attractions, if y’all locomote early on inwards the day, or tardily inwards the twenty-four hr menstruum thus things are much quieter. And it’s depression flavor anyway, addition the plane green is new, thus I intend a lot of people don’t know nigh it. We got our tickets (entry is 500 Baht for adults too 300 for kids – that’s the tourist price, nosotros pay a helluva lot less every bit locals), too went straight to the plane exhibit which was almost gear upwardly to laid out amongst only a handful of visitors.
(above) An impressive place for the plane exhibit too infinite for a dyad of hundred people, but for this show, yesteryear the fourth dimension it started, at that spot were nigh 25 people. And almost all were Thai. I’m guessing the afterwards shows would live much busier. The “bird show” started amongst to a greater extent than or less parrots who raced bikes … the parrots afterwards also did to a greater extent than or less maths, showed their environmental awareness yesteryear putting beer cans inwards the garbage too guessed the historic menstruum of a volunteer from the audience. Actually I intend they were macaws, non that I am an ornithologist!

The tiny crowd made it slow for our boy to volunteer inwards the show. Who wants to concord this enormous bird?
I believe that’s a Wreathed Hornbill. Well, that’s what Google told me. And the man child was non finished yet. Who wants an eagle to swoop downwardly too accept a chapeau off their head? The fearless man child says yeah again. Good show!
Hard to larn a photograph of an eagle flight only a few meters away! It swoops downwardly from the nurture of the viewing stand upwardly to select handgrip of it’s target. Quite impressive to run across that upwardly unopen amongst your entirely man child every bit bait 🙂
Well, the exhibit was extra prissy amongst 1 of our kids jumping upwardly on stage, a expert argue to locomote early on amongst less crowds. So, amongst the exhibit lasting nigh 25 minutes, nosotros thus laid off to explore the residual of the plane park. We had to rush a bit, every bit the kid’s music shape starts at midday. Might get got to revisit the plane green sometime soon. After the exhibit nosotros exited the arena from the top. The plane green is built at the bottom of a hill, thus at that spot are to a greater extent than or less ups too downs… too it was a hot day. Fortunately at that spot are also a dyad of cafes on the means round, too similar the botanic garden, they don’t accuse every bit good much (20 Baht for soft drinks for example). There are plenty of plane cages side yesteryear side to a broad walkway, lots to run across actually. I was variety of expecting only the exhibit too a few cages of parrots!
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 shame nosotros did get got to rush, I tried to snap photos of a few pretty birds on the means downhill to the locomote out …
(above) Some parroty variety of birds.
(above) Another variety of hornbill.
(above) De Niro Parrot. Are y’all talking to me? I did non halt to human face at all the birds – nosotros were at that spot for an hr too a one-half too that was non genuinely enough. You tin tell that it’s a novel house – the gardens are non bad too tidy, non getting jungly yet!
And at that spot are to a greater extent than or less bigger birds too. Several ostrich had a sizeable enclosure to themselves. I kept alarm my kids to non lean over the barriers, every bit ostrich get got long necks too large beaks! They are impressive birds.
Time to go! Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 slightly rushed visit, enjoyed yesteryear all – peculiarly my boy the “bird man”. Phuket keeps growing novel attractions. I intend this plane green too the botanic garden are worth a human face for sure.
Update … sometime after our see too my weblog post .. nosotros flora a dyad of signs advertising the Phuket Bird Park using a photograph from this weblog page – the 1 amongst my boy belongings the hornbill. Part of me wanted to brand a fuss regarding copyright too model releases! But nosotros (especially my son) only enjoyed the instant – he liked having his human face upwardly on a sign 🙂
UPDATE 2016 – nosotros went over again 🙂
And it’s rattling probable that we’ll locomote notwithstanding again!
