Bird Park Exhibit Areas

Wetlands
The Wetlands Exhibit at Bird Park aims to showcase the diverse bird life as well as create awareness of the importance of wetland ecosystems and how we can take action to protect them. Wetlands are vital for providing clean water to urban areas! They improve water quality by trapping harmful pollutants in sediment and absorbing excess nutrients.
Wings of Asia
Home to the region’s most exotic and endangered birds, take a walk into this free flight aviary and admire one of the largest collections of Asian birds. The Aviary is a home to the critically endangered as well as endemic birds of Asia and Sri Lanka. In its efforts to conserve the species, off-exhibit aviaries were set up to breed these birds. Since the breeding programme started since inception of the park and through its research programme, the Park has successfully bred several of these rare birds.
Flightless Birds
Flightless birds are birds that through evolution lost the ability to fly. There are many species to look at including the well known ratites such as the ostrich, emu, and rhea. The largest (both heaviest and tallest) flightless bird, which is also the largest living bird, is the ostrich (2.7 m, 156 kg). Many domesticated birds, such as the domestic chicken and domestic duck, have lost the ability to fly for extended periods, although their ancestral species, the red junglefowl and mallard, respectively, are capable of extended flight. Flightlessness has evolved in many different birds independently.
Macaw & Cockatoo Zone
Macaws and cockatoos can be tamed and raised as pets without any serious injuries to humans.They have wonderful and complex personalities, great intelligence, live a long time, and are relatively easy to care for physically. They are extremely inquisitive, curious, affectionate, and playful animals that need a great deal of time and attention paid to them in order for them to be happy and well adjusted. You can see some of the popluar breeds such as the Hyacinth macaw, a very rare and very sweet sub-species of macaw. They are the largest of the macaw family, and they frequently have the best dispositions. These birds live in a great variety of environments from hot tropical rainforests to nearly antarctical climate. Many of their species are highly specialized in nutrition and biotope requirements. Others seem to be cosmopolites.
Parrot Paradise
Bird Park Hambantota houses a large collection of parrots with an impressive showcase of some of the world’s most unique parrots. You can tell a parrot by its short, hooked bills and incurved mandibles (lower beak), as well as their finely scaled feet. On each foot, they have 2 toes pointing forward and 2 pointing backward. This gives them a better ability to grasp items and they are known for their exceptional ability to perform acrobatic acts as they perch on branches or even hang upside down. Their ability to mimic human voices and sounds has also endeared them to many and that is why, they are popular pets.
