KL Bird Park




The KL Bird Park is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur at Jalan Cenderawasih, Taman Tasik Perdana. It is set in the scenic Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens and is just a 10-minute drive from the city centre. (It's notable that KL Bird Park is also accessible via KL Hop-On-Hop-Off bus - station 14 is at the KL Bird Park Main Entrance).

Boasting the world's largest free-flight, walk-in aviary, the KL Bird Park is a must-visit place in Malaysia. If you love birds like me, you will love the KL Bird Park for it's beauty and wide variety of bird species. The best part is that they all roam around together and are tolerant of humans.

The KL Bird Park opened in 1991 and covers 21 acres of land, divided into 4 zones. We managed to walk around the entire park, though we would have stayed much longer if it wasn't for our children feeling under the weather.

I was amazed by how friendly the birds were with humans. I even managed to crouch just a few feet away from birds so I could take a picture, without them moving an inch!

I hope you enjoy the images I captured of these beautiful birds:


The first area after entering is the Love Aviary. These love birds were colourful to say the least. One flew from behind me, right past my left ear, which gave me quite a shock, but they did pose nicely for pictures!








These little birds were all over the place, following us around, easy to photograph. They were Lauren's favourite birds!







The majestic peacock





Ready for photographs...


My favourite bird...





Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the Flamingo Pond any closer


I love the look on this bird's face!

  6. The last time I went to the bird park was years ago. But the place has not changed terribly though. I like pic No 1 and the one of the waterfall. Nevertheless all the photos look good. If you were there in the noon, then it must have been taxing for the kids.
