These are the Jungle Jewels in the South American Aviary at Jurong Bird Park. Colorful, fruit eating birds. Their color is supposed to act as a camouflage in the jungles where they exist. 

A note from the official Jurong Bird Park website:
Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary

Jungle Jewels is designed to create an environment where visitors can observe at close proximity a fraction of the amazing diversity and complexity of the South American rainforest.

The South American Rainforest represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests and comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world.

Here in the Jungle Jewels exhibit, nature lovers will be exhilarated to find lush vegetation, cascading water and a wide variety of South American birds.

Spread across 2,300 square metres, the exhibit is home to close to small and brilliantly coloured birds native to South America.
