The KL Bird Park located within the serene and scenic Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens is the world’s largest free-flight walk-in aviary.
Just ten minutes’ drive from the Kuala Lumpur city centre, it was officially opened in 1991.
The last time I visited it was almost four years ago, and although there were no major changes that I could detect, this time, I had a very good ranger who explained about the park and the birds which call it home. That certainly made a whole lot of difference to my visit.
With a land size of approximately 21 acres, the park is divided into four zones. There are some 3000 birds in total, of 200 local and foreign bird species.
The main feature of KL Bird Park is obviously its free-flight concept. It is as though visitors have entered an enormous bird cage instead.
Event highlights of the day would be the KL Bird Park Bird Show at the semi-open air amphitheatre at 12.30pm and 3.30pm daily and the feeding of birds such as lories, ostriches, horn-bills, milky storks and free flying birds at various times of the day at the different zones of the park.
