Recently announced by Dr. Mark Penning, Director of Animal Operations, Disney Parks, a new animal experience is coming soon to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Debuting this summer, the Flights of Wonder show in collaboration with Disney Creative Entertainment, will debut  the new feature called “Winged Encounters — The Kingdom Takes Flight“.

The show will revolve around beautiful flocks of macaws in a kaleidoscope of colors flying over and around the heart of the park — Discovery Island.  There will be six types of macaw starring in the new “Winged Encounters — The Kingdom Takes Flight“: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military.

You may catch these birds making short flights in the early morning hours at Animal Kingdom.  We applaud Disney for helping keep these beautiful species populated as they are mostly endangered in their native territories of Central and South America.
