The ‘Eagles of Paradise’ display and ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ are incredibly popular and unique in Cornwall. Extremely close encounters with unusual birds including eagles, a vulture, cockatoos and choughs flying within, around and above the crowds. You will be left in awe of these wonderful birds!
“The shows were fabulous, especially the bird flying (we’ve never seen a kookaburra in action!). (TripAdvisor Aug18)
The ‘Eagles of Paradise Display’ happens at 12noon every day during the summer (weather permitting)
This gives you the opportunity to see birds like Archie the Bald Eagle up-close as he flies over and around you during these very informative and interesting flying displays.
Other species which can feature in this display include:
Tangee the Palm-nut Vulture
Talis the Golden Eagle
Dakota a young Bald Eagle
Anara and Andros the Harris Hawks
Angelo the Bateleur Eagle
Evan the Barn Owl
Bong the Kookaburra
The ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ At 3:30pm every day (weather permitting)
A great opportunity to learn about natural bird behaviours in a wonderfully entertaining way. The birds may vary but you may see macaws, cockatoos and conures among others. Parrots help the presenters explain the role of parrot conservation and biodiversity, and how much care pet birds need.
You may also see Dave the Otter showing off his skills with a keeper.
Watch out for a Kea parrot demonstrating recycling, and the wonderful Red-billed Cornish choughs flying to a Cornish flag while learning about our conservation project to help introduce this species back in to the wild! Find out more about Operation Chough here.
The kookaburras show their incredible natural reaction to snakes, and sometimes use visitors with hats as perches!
New birds with different skills are often introduced to the Free Flying Bird Show, all trained using ‘positive re-enforcement.
To end the show, a flying group of macaws (Scarlet Macaws, Blue-throated Macaws and Military Macaws) take flight. A fantastic opportunity to see these amazing parrots up-close.
You are also invited to come up on stage to give a donation to the World Parrot Trust in a unique way! Please see the video below.
Please note that the daily shows are subject to change or cancellation due to weather (high winds/heavy rain).
