The populace of birds includes about eight macaws, twelve toucans, six cockatoos, nine forktails and an assortment of other tropical birds.
The leaders of the Tiki Room are four macaws consisting of José, Michael, Pierre, and Fritz. Japan's alternate versions have also introduced two new sets of macaw emcees, with Get the Fever! featuring Danno, Scats, Buddy, and Lava (a female) and Aloha e Komo Mai featuring Hanoli, Manu, Mahina, and Waha Nui.
In Disney Kingdoms: Enchanted Tiki Room, the birds, and flowers gaining an ability to speak human languages is the result of the magic of the Tiki Room itself and this can extend to any animal that enters the room. A migratory bird who finds herself given speech is soon alienated from the rest of their flock and ends up taking part in a rare ceremony with the Tiki Gods to have it undone, though her recounting of the event just before the magic fully takes away her voice is interrupted by squawks.
Tales from Adventureland
In Tales from Adventureland: The Keymaster's Quest, the birds of the Tiki Room are rare magical breeds known as the Akamai that are capable of human speech and possess great intelligence for birds. The Tiki Room was built by the menehune as a safe haven for them and the Jungle Exploration Society has committed to further protecting them through constructing an outdoor security system of animated Tiki God sculptures to frighten away superstitious poachers.
