Witness flightless birds at the Dinosaur Descendents section and be amused at the antics of the ostriches, rheas, cassowaries, and rheas hopping around the premises. The Jurong Bird Park also features shows such as the “King of the Skies Show”, where visitors can witness majestic birds of prey soar above the tree tops in aerial loops and witness falconry in action.
