my take is just go.........even if u came back with only a few keeper shots, at least u went there to see the ground, and the next time u go, you will know how to walk around.

I'd would suggest you check the programmes...certain shows are conducted in the morning, i.e. hornbills while some inthe afternoon...besides the lighting conditions will be very different, not to mention the energy level of the birds...;)

If you do quite a bit of shooting (and waiting around for the birds to "get into" position), no, 4 hrs is far from enough to cover the entire park. In fact, do try to target certain species of birds on certain days and timeslots once you have gone through the whole park as different types of birds will be more active during different parts of the day. ;)
