Love bird-watching but it’s too much a hassle to travel to their natural habitat deep in the rainforest for bird watching activities? Well, fret not, there is one place nestled in the heart of Kuala Lumpur where you can literally get up close and personal with more than 200 species of birds; The KL Bird Park.
The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is definitely an attraction in Kuala Lumpur that is not to be missed as it is the world’s largest free flight aviary; which means most birds in the Bird Park flies freely as if they are in natural habitat.
Some of the main attractions of the park are the hornbill park, the flamingo pond, the world of parrots, the egg incubation area, the bird gallery and education center just to name a few.
Getting up close and personal with birds
Peacocks aplenty in the birdpark and if you wait long enough, they will proudly flare their tails to you.
Parrot. This little guy can’t talk, but he is certainly a friendly fella, as whenever visitors goes near, he will offer you whatever he’s been eating by picking them up with his beak and walks towards you while nodding his head up and down, insisting that you take the food. Talk about hospitality at it’s best.
Why play Angry Birds when you can play with a real ‘angry bird’?
This bird actually came to me and held his pose until I finished taking my photos.
The saying, ‘Birds of a feather, flocks together is indeed true’
The birds are mostly used to visitors approaching them, so they are tame and would actually go to you if you are patient enough. Visitors can take long strolls along the walkway of the park while enjoying the view of birds of various colours and sizes.
