Walk in to this free flying bird exhibit and immerse yourself in the south east Asian jungle. Take a seat on the bench and watch these beautiful songbirds fly around you whilst learning about the plight of song birds in the wild and how threatened they are. See if you can spot the rarest animal you’ll see at Newquay Zoo, our pair of Javan green magpies.
