Amazing Shows

The summer ‘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 summer ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ 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 cockatoos, choughs 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 see 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.

Impressive Scarlet Macaw Spectacle at the end of the 3pm ‘Free Flying Bird Show’

You will be moved by the sight of the stunningly beautiful parrots flying out of their aviary and soaring into the sky. Strong and skilled flyers, our very sweet macaws are Haribo, Candy, Calipo, Dotty, Truffles, Skittles, Sherbert, Shrimp, Rhubarb, Polo, Malteser and Bounty. Another great photo opportunity.

Have a cockatoo fly to your hand at the end of the 3pm ‘Free Flying Bird Show’

A unique and fun way for the staff and birds to fundraise for Paradise Park’s conservation projects. You have the opportunity to go up on the main stage at the end of the afternoon ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ to give a £1 or £2 donation. Roseate Cockatoos Billy, Rizzo or Rio will be ready to fly to your hand, collect the coin, fly back to the presenter and place it into the collection tin. Great fun and a very popular experience, all for a good cause. Weather permitting.

Please note that the daily shows are subject to change or cancellation due to weather (high winds/heavy rain).
