Located in the heart of the city, Kuala Lumpur’s bird park, popularly known as KL Bird Park takes you amidst nature as soon as you buy the ticket to it. A sprawling campus divided into zones, some of which let the birds fly free while others that restrict them to certain areas. It needs quite some time if you are a bird watcher. Even if you are not, the walk-in aviary will put you in awe. As you may have never been so close to some of the flying beauties.

200 Bird Species.

I was told there are about 200 species of birds in this park. Though I must admit I would have observed something like 30-40 only. But then I am not bird specialist and am bound to miss the minor differences. I do remember some very colorful birds in bright colors. And some in so many colors that I was tempted to count the colors – if they were to sit down for some time.

First Zone of KL Bird Park.

In the first zone first birds I saw were the colorful peacocks. Then I saw a look alike but in grey color with red eyes and a crown on the head. Many trees had papaya fruit stuck to them. To feed and to attract birds at eye level for the visitors. Various types of pigeon were relishing papaya. Bright orange birds in water body appeared to me as if a white pelican has been soaked in color.

Artificial Waterfall.

Walk in Aviary with an artificial waterfall and a walkway that runs over a water body. Birds flying all around and sitting on parapets, oblivious to the visitors who go crazy clicking their pictures. It is an attempt to re-create the rain forests in the middle of a bustling city.

Towards the end, small zoo-like enclosures had some colorful birds, all of these may not be native.
