Great place ....one of the better bird parks and they also have a restaurant ....food is okay but the setting is great if you sit outside.....think the bird park is a must visit when you are in KL

The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park was an add-on for us after visiting the National Orchid Garden. It was a great place! Beautiful birds everywhere, and very photogenic. We spent three hours there watching the various birds soar through the huge canopy area. The enclosed area is huge and allows the birds to exhibit some of their natural behaviors - mating dances, feeding chicks, and competing for females. I would recommend this to anyone even marginally interested in birds.

I really wanted to visit KL Bird Park as I'm an amateur Ornithologist and really wanted to learn about the local bird life in Malaysia. On the one hand I was delighted, on the other I was heartbroken.

First thing, it is not completely free flight. I can understand having some birds caged (like birds of prey) but seeing so many birds cooped up really ruined the experience.
When you first walk in, you enter a reasonably large area that is filled with lovebirds. Who are constantly chewing at the wire trying to get out. For one or two pairs it would have been fine, but we saw at least 10 pairs chewing at the wire.

My partner and I loved seeing so many birds in the free flight areas, and we had a great time wandering about and observing the many different species. We were saddened when we came across the owls, who were in cages too small for them, they could stretch their wings but that was about it, they couldn't really move about much at all. I was also appalled by the Kite enclosure, seven of them were jammed in an enclosure only 10m across. This was nothing compared to the size of the cages for the other birds of prey. Eagles and hawks were squashed into cages maybe 3x3m.
We bypassed the photo area as we were heading to the parrot enclosure and figured we'd get some great photos there. I paid an attendant 2 ringgit and I was handed a small cup of coconut milk and some seeds and was instantly swamped with parrots who were squabbling for the treats. My partner was also swamped and had them in his hair and hanging off his shirt. That was great fun, and it was good to see so many different species close up. We headed into a waterfall area next and were treated to a male peacock displaying for some females.
There were peacocks and peahens all through the park, but many of them showed signs of stress and had broken tail feathers. I think this was more to do with the constant human interaction, as we saw many tourists bothering the birds by getting too close, or using flash photography.

Many of the paths were slippery and once or twice we stumbled and slid around. I definitely recommend wearing decent shoes when you come here, we were in sand shoes and had a lot of difficulty on the slippery paths (go slow!). They also don't allow outside food and drink to be taken into the park, but the stalls outside sell food and drink for a reasonable price.

Overall, this park was great for the tourist in me, I loved seeing so many incredible birds in such a short amount of time, but the bird lover in me hated seeing so many beautiful creatures stuffed in little cages. Great if you want to learn and spend some time among birds, not great if you're an animal lover.

For a jaded globe trotter like me, this was a very fresh and new experience. There was a good variety of birds all around and you could snap away very pictures and interact firsthand. MUST GO!
