Amazing Shows

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!

Eagles of Paradise Display

The ‘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 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 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.

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.

Colourful Macaws

At the end of the display you can come up on stage to give a donation to Paradise Park and 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).
