Bird Park

Bird Park [Taman Burung] is inside the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah complex, Jakarta, which I have visited several times over a long period of time. Not much has changed at the TMII Bird Park, it's just that there's an impression that the collection didnn't seem to have increased much and there were some cages that looked empty at the time, might be waiting for new residents though.

For those who bring cars, a large parking area is provided to the right of the entrance counter, which is also an exit and a place where there are food stalls and souvenir shops. There is also limited parking space on the road side before the entrance to the Bird Park.


After paying the entrance ticket, and stepping into the park area, right near the entrance, there were some beautiful parrots. After we stopped enjoying it, we continued our steps to enter the giant wire dome with a collection of birds from Western Indonesia.

The Bird Park was built in 1975, with only one dome when it was inaugurated on August 19, 1976. Eight more domes were inaugurated on April 27, 1986. The west dome was for birds in West Indonesia, and east dome for birds of East Indonesia. The largest dome was 68 m in diameter and 30 mm high, the smallest was 20 mm and 9 m high.

Inside the large dome there's a place that was above an artificial mound where visitors could take pictures with Sulawesi hornbill and owl by paying a certain amount of money to the bird's couch. TMII Bird Park had a collection of around 2000 birds consisting of 167 species in Indonesia.

One of the interesting collections at Jakarta Bird Park was a kind of egret or a beautiful heron with long neck feathers and yellowish brown upper head. Its pointed beak is sharp and its small, alert eyes come in handy when looking for prey.


Beautiful gray crown tiered birds were also available at the Jakarta TMII Bird Park. These birds usually live in groups, but I didn't see any other birds nearby. Origami cranes are called tsuru, after the Japanese name for this bird, or so-called crane paper folds.

It is estimated that throughout the Indonesian archipelago, about 250 species of birds live. Birds from the western part of Indonesia include birds that live in the islands of Bali, Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan. Meanwhile, birds in Eastern Indonesia include birds from Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, Papua, Maluku Islands, and small islands around them.

The artificial lake in the Bird Park was a comfortable place for these white pelicans with beautiful black lines which were swimming slowly and relaxing on the water's surface. Apart from pelicans, there were geese, ducks and grouse that swam in this lake. The lake was also a place for drinking and bathing birds that were allowed to live freely in the park.

Another beautiful bird at the Jakarta Bird Park was the Mambruk ubiaat (Goura cristata) which is a relative of pigeons, with a beautiful crown on its head that resembles lace and dark feathers around its eyes. Mambruk ubiaat is an animal endemic to Papua with the main food in the form of fruit and seeds.

No less interesting was the green peafowl (Pavo muticus) with an upright crest which is one of the three species of peacock of the Phasianidae tribe with beautiful golden green feathers. Adult male birds can reach 3 meters in length. The green peacock is a bird that can fly. Unfortunately I didn't get the picture when the wings were fluffy.

A dove with a neckline attracted me to shoot it with a telephoto lens, as soon as it mades its melodious voice. There were also birds with beautiful curly hair, although without the aid of make-up, as well as a kind of peacock with a crested and beautiful hair. Hornbills or Enggang, protected bird species, were also available.


The land contours of the two main domes (West Indonesia and East Indonesia) were made of wavy. Along the track there were cage cages for rarely seen birds such as the Bondol Eagle, Ketupa Beluk, Bido's Snake Eagle, White Chest Sea Eagle, as well as a feeding area for birds that are allowed to fly or walk freely in the dome. Other large birds of interest in the TMII was Cassowary and Julang Bird.

TMII Bird Park is still one of the best spots in the TMII complex for all ages. Visitors can walk along the track in a row of large domes which provide an opportunity to see up close the collection of wild birds originating from the eastern and western parts of the Indonesian archipelago.
