A 'Bird'day at KL Bird Park - 1 Oct 2011

We arrived at the Tree House - Hornbill Restaurant and started to acquaint ourselves in the jungle-like environment. KL Bird Park is supposed to be the world's largest free-flight walk-in aviary and is home to over 3,000 birds of 200 bird species. It has been a long while since we visited the bird park, and our first time attending a birthday celebration there!!


You won't missed the Rhinoceros Hornbill, one of the largest hornbill species in the world......


The children were excited to start the exploration walk with the Park Ranger.


Lovebirds or Angry Birds??


Do you know that owls have to turn their heads to move their eyes? Owls can turn their heads around far enough to see directly behind them. The total range of head rotation for most owl species is an amazing 270 degrees. 

Up-close-and-personal with the colourful bird!


"World of Parrots" - a mini aviary for various species of parrots including macaws, cockatoos, lories and parakeets.


Children feeding the hungry lories with sunflower seeds and milk....


Beautiful rainbow lorikeets....


'Blu-lookalike' in the bird show. Most children could identify with the bird from the recent movie, "Rio", of a funny blue macaw who had to escape from being smuggled by a cockatoo.


A special visit from Big Bill, the hornbill to the party....


The cake cutting ceremony of the blessed 'bird'day girl....

It was a fun and colourful experience for not only the children, but the adults as well. The park exploration walk was educational, seeing so many species of colourful and lively birds living together in this semi-natural environment.
