Flamingo Island Adventure, a new daily activity, brings American flamingos and island birds, such as Bali mynas and blue-crowned motmots, closer to visitors than ever before. Visitors can feed the flamingos and hold up fish for the island birds to grab.

Visitors will also now have the opportunity to be just inches away from the world’s largest pigeon species. During the Victoria Crowned Pigeon Royal Stroll, the birds are led by aviary staff from their home in the Tropical Rainforest to walk the halls of Canary’s Call.
