KL Bird Park – The Home Paradise for Aviary Species
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is the showpiece of the renowned 60-ha Lake Gardens. Also known as the Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur, it is billed as the world’s largest covered bird park. The 20.9-ha park was opened in 1991 and is home to more than 3,000 birds from 200 species all over the world.
The Free-Flight Aviary
Experience the ambience of lush green tropical rainforest once you step into our free-flight walk-in aviary.
You will find various bird species flying freely and living together in harmony and balance, creating a unique ecosystem of its own in this semi-natural environment.
First encounter, boss bird seagull with her own exclusive nest right at the starting walk-in trail, exotic and calm gigantic bird which you can take a nice picture with her.
Feel amazed by the courtship display of the Indian Blue Peacock with its magnificent, colourful, and empress-like appearance. The KL Bird definitely had done an excellent job in taking care of their birds (nice feather and feeling energetic from those birds).
It is Blue Peacock mating season now around the early December, do expect to witness various male peacock showing their glamorous feather anywhere around the bird park.
The Crowned pigeon, serves as the largest pigeon species in the world by having the body size of a turkey. It has a mini white crown around its head which will spread open occasionally.
Feel free to join the Flying Birds Feeding that takes place in the park at 10.30am.
Upon stepping into the mini aviaries in the park, located at the main entrance area, you will be greeted by the naughty Indian Ring-necked Parakeets.
The Love Aviary got its name from the main ‘tenants’ of this aviary, the Lovebirds. The name Lovebird stems from these parrots’ strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods of time in which paired birds will spend sitting beside one another.
A lot of lovely couples loves to take pictures together these tiny little creatures, maybe you should try it out with someone?
The Brahminy Land exhibits a collection of Brahminy Kites (Eagles), one of the popular local bird of prey species in Malaysia.
These magnificent birds give out sorrowful, mewing calls especially during late evenings.
Don’t forget to catch The Eagle’s Feeding show which takes place at Brahminy Land at 2.30pm daily.
The owl-owl house also situated at Brahmi Land as well, they might have gone inactive during daylight with a cute sleepy face but do not underestimate them during the night falls.
Special Sight Seeing
The main feature that distinguishes KL Bird Park from any other bird parks is the concept of free-flight.
One of the most prominent evidence that these birds have adapted so well to this environment is that they are already able to breed naturally.
You can see various types of birds scattering all around the park during the walk (some might be curious about you and follows all the way around).
The Peacock Gallery
The male (peacock) club with long, shiny and nice feathers constantly flap open to attracts the females.
The female (peacock) club without any nice long feather but in return have beautiful elegant eyes, gains the absolute right to choose their mating partner.
The Peacock Jr trains hard since the young age with courageous spirit to become the next Mr Olympia.
Can you tell where and which type of bird is in the photo? 🙂
Some of the largest bird species that roam the earth – most of which can be found right here at KL Bird Park!
Meet the collection of rarities; flightless birds which are enormous in size and have adapted well to life on the ground that they have lost their ability to fly.
Ostrich, for example, is known to be one of the fastest moving creatures on earth, due to its powerful long legs.
Experience a relaxing stroll along the paths in another one of the scenic mini aviaries, the Waterfall Aviary.
A picturesque set up of lush green trees and a 30-feet tall man-made waterfall, this mini aviary is also the sanctuary for Milky Storks, one of the vulnerable and highly protected bird species in Malaysia.
Don’t forget to catch the Milky Stork Feeding in this Waterfall Aviary at 4.00pm daily.
The Flamingo Pond, definitely one of the best sites to be enjoyed while you are in the park. Catch a glimpse of the Greater and Lesser Flamingos gracefully sun-bathing in a beautifully landscaped pond complete with a scenic man-made waterfall.
This pond is also a favourite spot for other wading birds inhabiting the free-flight aviary especially early in the morning. You might be seeing live birds catching fish event in this pond if you are lucky enough.
Bird Park Facilities
Visitors can clearly enjoy the picturesque pond sight while taking a break at the Food & Beverage Kiosk during the trip.
The Flamingo Kiosk sells snacks, beverages, soft drinks and ice cream which is the most popular option for visitors.
