This is a red Macaw Parrot. Here he is with his handler, Teeneil. He was very friendly and could do lots of tricks.
There were lots of Peacocks wandering around the park, occasionally approaching people who had bits of food.
The Peacocks have an amazing plumage, we the males do at least. I’d love to get a photo of the tail fanned out but none of the males seemed that interested. Must be the wrong time of year.
I didn’t know Peacocks like ice cream so much, apparently they like popcorn too!
We stayed in the parrot enclosure for ages, interacting with the birds. This beautiful one wouldn’t leave Matt alone choosing to sit on his shoulder instead of the tree.
I wonder how many thousands of years it’s taken to form these beautiful shapes. And how long they went undiscovered. Amazing really.
