A Pandemonium of Parrots

Watch in wonder as the winged stars of the show take off near the Tree of Life. Like a living kaleidoscope, the brilliantly colored birds swoop and soar over Discovery Island.

Keep your peepers peeled for appearances by 6 species of South American macaw: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military. The largest have an incredible wingspan of around 48 inches.

Gather around as our resident bird care experts unlock the secrets of these fascinating creatures—and even answer questions from the audience.

It’s the ultimate bird-watching experience!
