Some think Kuala Lumpur is a hectic city, but nestled within the skyscrapers and non-stop traffic of Malaysia's capital is a beautiful nature oasis filled with fascinating wildlife.
The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, KL Bird Park, or Taman Burung (which means "bird garden" in the Malay language), is one of the city's top tourist attractions. In this video and article we will discuss the ins and outs of the park while also getting to know some of the feathered friends that live here!

This park is the largest free-flight aviary of its kind, with over 3000 birds roaming freely and living inside in 20 acres of gated gardens. Here are three popular birds at the park:
One bird you will see a lot of at the park is the Yellow-billed Stork. This bird originates from Africa and lives in wetland habitats such as lakes, rivers, swamps and lagoons. Their diet consists of freshwater fish and other aquatic creatures such as frogs, crabs, insects and worms. They can grow up to 3.5 feet tall! You can see a bunch of these storks at the Free-flying Bird Feeding event which occurs every day at the park at 10:30am.
At this Free-flying Bird Feeding you’ll also see the Cattle Egret. This bird’s name comes from its symbiotic relationship with a variety of large mammals, including cattle, elephants, horses and rhinos. In the wild, cattle egrets eat the insects and bugs off of their larger mammal friends.
To feed a bird of your own, visit the World Of Parrots Aviary which is open from 10:30am to 5pm daily! You can hold this Eclectus Parrot and others for only twelve cents USD. Eclectus Parrots are a native of Australia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and/or the Solomon Islands. The males are green, whereas the females are red.
Two other fun activities at the park include relaxing by the 30 foot man-made waterfall and watching more birds, such as flamingos, wade in the waters, and experiencing the exciting Bird Show which happens daily at 12:30pm and 3:30pm. At the show, parrots and cockatoos fly, do tricks and even talk! At the end of the show, guests are given food to feed ducks!
