Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a public aviary in Kuala Lumpur. It is a part of Perdana Botanical garden. It was established in 1991. It receives an average of 200,000 visitors annually.
Located on a hillside of Bukit Aman, the bird park houses more than 200 species of birds in an enclosed aviary hugging the slopes. About 90% are local birds and 10% were imported from countries all over the world.
KL Bird Park is divided into four zones. It takes more or less three hours to visit all the four zones. Zone 1 is the main entrance. The visitor will walk into the netted walk-in aviary that comprises the Love Aviary, Brahminy Land, Flamingo Pond and Bulbul Land. If the visitors are lucky, they will get to see the birds being fed.
Then in the Zone 2, the visitors get to see Baya weaver, Nicobar pigeon, Ostrich and Scarlet ibis. As for the Zone 3, the visitors are presented with Rhinoceros Hornbill, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Hill Myna, Formosan Blue Magpie and Purple Swamphen.
Lastly the Zone 4. It is the most interactive zone among the four. The visitors can walk in the parrot enclosure that houses 20 different species of parrots such as Macaws, Cockatoos, Lories and Parakeets. It also features the Flightless Birds exhibit like Emu, Ostrich and Southern Cassowary. It has the feeding station that allows visitors to feed the birds. Zone 4 also has the air-conditioned Bird Gallery, Education Station and Bird School.The highlight of this zone is the Waterfall Aviary that has a 30-foot high freshwater waterfall.

The bird park was set among a gorgeous landscape which included, gardens,waterfalls and several feeding points for the birds. As a nature lover and avid photographer,I was enthralled with the walk in the park area. Since the park boundaries were large, one never felt being in a crowd despite the large number of visitors who throng the aviary daily.
If you have some time to kill in Kuala Lumpur, then I suggest KL Bird Park, especially if you’re traveling with kids. It’s a great place to spend a couple of hours, with or without a camera.
