24 To The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park With The Nephews

My nephews were here for a week and boy, did they bring the sunshine!

I took them to Kuala Lumpur Bird Park one morning.  It's a beautiful aviary garden spanning approximately 20.9 acres of land that's located smack in the city.

Most of the birds roams free and have gotten used to human presence. I say this because they were sneaky enough to come close and bite off a cookie from my little nephew's hand the moment his face was turned the other way. It happened not once, but twice! Cheeky birds.

Here are some photos I took.

Yellow Billed Stork

Flamingos

Egrets

My nephews were excited, of course. It was up close with the birds. Both of them started mimicking how the birds walked. They followed quietly and slowly from a distance. Too cute to watch!

Although it was a sunny day, we didn't find it too hot to walk about  as the area is well shaded by trees.

There is no shortage of bird food as you can see. One of the Do's and Don'ts, as written on KL Bird Park's website.

"PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FEED THE BIRDS 

We strictly monitor the diet of our birds. Wrong type of food may cause serious problems to the birds. Do not attempt to feed the birds on your own without supervision by our authorized personnels."

If anyone is keen, there are plenty of opportunities to do so at specific areas. Proper bird food can be purchased directly from the staff that is stationed there.

There is also a duck pond with lots of fish. This shot was taken along the path that had a cascading rock fountain. Fish food can be purchased from the vending machine which is located close to the ponds.

Let me list down the activities that you can do here with the kids - Bird/Fish feeding, watch the Bird Show, play at the Children's Playground, Souvenir shopping (maybe?), Dine at the Hornbill Restaurant in the company of birds.
 
Tickets are priced at RM27 for locals. It's about half the price for kids.

All in, we had a wonderful time here and my brother said that this place was worth the visit. It was a lovely experience to watch the birds. We would have stayed longer but it was lunch time and the kids were hungry.

That ended our bird watching adventure. We zoomed the two boys home.
