KL Bird Park prides itself as the world’s largest free-flight walk-in aviary. While efforts to replicate a jungle atmosphere seems to be working for the birds, it doesn’t do any good for us humans. The fact that it’s free-flight means that the birds are everywhere or nowhere.
Birds are semi-tamed. The free-roaming ones might run/fly away from you, some might try to snatch your food. I had to tiptoe like a thief in the night for this shot.
We spotted this snobbish peacock which refused to come down for a shot.
Thank goodness, one came. We hurried ourselves. My brother seemed uncomfortable.
If you ask me, I honestly think the place is not well-maintained. According to the official website, “…bountiful sources of fallen leaves, branches and twigs makes KL Bird Park a highly conducive environment for breeding” errr…true but what’s with the grass-less ground and rusty fences? They look like scrap materials from a recycling plant.
The green net doesn’t do justice to the place or that beautiful white peacock.
I prefer the separate cages and mini aviaries.
It’s feeding time!
Now this is fun!
Here are a few tips for you.
- If you’ve been to bird parks, you can forget about this one
- Not much shade around here, so bring an umbrella or a cap if you don’t fancy the sun
- You’d need a camera which can zoom in pretty well
- If you miss the chance to snap pictures with real birds, the fake ones aren’t too bad; this is a rubbish bin though
We had fun in the mini aviaries. Other than that, this isn’t a must-go. I’d rather spend my time roaming the streets and immerse myself in the hustle and bustle of KL’s city life.
I’d give this place…a few stars…
