Malaysia Chronicles Four: KL Bird Park

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

The one place that I really wanted to visit in Kuala Lumpur is its Bird Park. Except for the lone maya chirping outside my apartment window, birds are such a rare sight from where I live that I can’t but seize the chance to see them at close range. Located within the Lake Gardens, the city’s 8.5-hectare free-flight walk-in aviary houses 800 birds of 60 local and foreign species, which include:

Oriental Pied Hornbill
Indian Blue Peacock
Flamingos
   


Crowned Pigeons
   
Sun Conures and Ring-necked Parakeets

The birds were fascinating, but the park itself was breathtaking. We spent the entire morning exploring the place and taking delight in its verdurous vista.
