Flights of Wonder

Flights of Wonder is a scheduled 25-minute live show presented several times a day in the Asia area of Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The show features the fascinating natural behaviors and often humorous talents of at least 20 species of exotic birds, including Harris hawks, macaws and a Yellow-napped Amazon parrot named Groucho, who has an amazing singing voice.

Step inside the shaded, canvas-canopied area and take a seat in front of the ornately-decorated Caravan Stage. This is where local tour guide "Guano" Joe and his partner Luke, a bird handler in training, pair up for the Flights of Wonder performance.

In response to "Guano" Joe and Luke's cues, the birds hunt, sing, soar and sometimes swoop just above your head for some high-flying surprises.

  • Abyssinian Ground Hornbill
