Precious Babies Now Nesting at Bali's Bird Park

Bali Bird Park has dedicated the entire months of April and May 2004 to family fun at the 2-hectare park in Singapadu, Gianyar that serves as a happy home to over 1,500 birds representing 250 species.

The two-month long celebration commences with an egg painting competition for children April 9-11, 2004, followed by a traditional Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday. On other days throughout the two month long family fun celebration, activities at the Park will be designed to maximize interaction and education for families visiting the facility.

The Park's Newest Residents

A special attraction at the park during this period will be the chance to see four very rare Bali Starlings or Jalak Bali - the first hatchlings of these blue-masked and virtually extinct birds at the Park since 2002.

Prized by collectors who flout the law in order to lay personal claim to this vanishing species of bird, a Jalak Bali will fetch as much as Rp. 10 - 15 million (approximately US$ 1,176 - US$ 1,764) for a bird on the black market. The bird's existence was first recorded in 1912 by an English ornithologist, Walter Rothschild, who immediately dubbed the bird the Rothschild's Mynah. Endemic only to the island of Bali, it now ranks among one of the world's most endangered birds.

The Jalak Bali usually produces only 2-3 babies to a nest, making the recent birth of four to a single nesting pair at the Park an especially blessed event. Thriving on a diet of crickets and mealworms, along with their daily supplemental diet of fruits and ants pupae (or kroto), the babies and their proud parents can be seen every day at the Bali Bird Park.
