We were very lucky with our timing.
They have two feeding times a day and also a bird ‘show’. I use inverted commas as it was more a photo opportunity with information than a show. It was cool to be able to hold the parrot, though and you can tune in while enjoying a refreshing drink.
After this, we had a wander and saw very clearly-labeled birds in their aviaries before heading the lory feeding. A little group of us gathered and waited excitedly. Soon a Bird Park rep came along with food and explained to us how to feed the birds. There were insects, grubs and seeds for them, as well as something to drink in a small metal bowl. The guide was also really informative and open to questions as the birds came over, be it flying or walking.
“Again?” asked Daisy several times. She got plenty of chances to feed the birds and loved it.
