Avid readers of this blog would know that I love to be surrounded by nature. As an introvert, there is only so much I can tolerate of the hustle and bustle of city life before I need to make an escape to somewhere calmer, more serene.
Last week, I had a whale of a time indulging in the popular waterfalls of Perak. I remember that it was such a scorching hot day that the cooling waters from the waterfall was so welcoming.
During that road trip, one of our destinations was Kinta Nature Park (Taman Alam Kinta). It was a pity that by the time we arrived, driving from Ipoh, it was already late morning. Truth be told, we miscalculated the time required to drive there, so it was quite late when we reached KNP and it was no longer an ideal time for bird watching.
My friend, after reading my experience at KNP, told me that The Haven is a bird-watcher’s paradise. Actually, I have known about it but I didn’t realise what a playground The Haven is for birds.
Well, I wouldn’t believe it myself if I were not shown these photos, which I have taken the liberty to share in this post. If you love birds as much as I do, I am sure you would be just as excited!
These photos were taken by a group of birders, members of Foto Imej Perak (FiP). They were invited to The Haven to bird watch. Obviously, as photography enthusiasts, they brought along their photography and videography equipment.
Not only that, as ardent birders, they even set up a bird-calling machine. This nifty little black box makes bird calls to attract the birdies. How cool is that?
These photos are only one part of their rewards for that morning. There are more but it is not possible to share them all here. So, what should you do??? Make your way to The Haven to personally get to know the birds, I say!
