Zone 4

Get up close with parrots and the world’s largest living bird in this large, open area.

World Of Parrots

This walk-in mini aviary is specially designed to accommodate 20 different species of parrots that we have in our collection consisting of cockatoos, lories and parakeets.

Some of the parrots are placed in individual exhibits in pairs as part of our breeding program while others have the freedom of flying freely inside the aviary giving the possibility for visitors to get closer to these beautiful birds.

Don’t miss the chance to get a closer look at some of the rare and even critically endangered parrot species such as the Pesquet’s Parrot which is also popularly known as the Vulturine Parrot and can only be found in Papua New Guinea; Moluccan Cockatoo which is endemic to the Seram Island in Indonesia and now critically endangered due to illegal trapping and habitat destruction; and the adorable Congo African Grey Parrots which are widely known to be the most intelligent parrot species.

Take part in our Lory Feeding, which happens from 10am till 5pm daily here at the World of Parrots.

Flightless Bird

Some of the largest bird species that roam the earth – most of which can be found right here at  KL Bird Park! Meet our collection of ratites; flightless birds which are mostly enormous in size and have adapted well to life on the ground that they have lost their ability to fly. Instead, ostrich for example, is known to be one of the fastest moving creature on earth, due to its powerful long legs.

Ostrich, Struthio camelus, is the largest living bird species in the world. It can reach the height of between 1.8 meters to 2.7 meters with body weight of 90 to 155kg. Large, strong legs with two toes enable it to walk about with easy strides and to run fast, with a top speed of 64km/h. Ostrich can be found in various parts of Africa where it prefers open areas such as deserts and grasslands. It feeds mainly on leaves, seeds and even insects. Ostrich eggs are the largest of all eggs and weigh about 1.3kg. The content of one ostrich egg is equivalent to two dozen chicken eggs.

Southern Cassowary, Casuarius casuarius, lives in the tropical rainforests of New Guinea and North-east Australia. On average it weighs 60kg and can live up to 50 years of age. It has coarse ebony black feathers, blue bare skin on the head and neck, and a red wattle that hang from the neck. Southern Cassowary uses the horn-like bony casque on top of its head and its powerful legs to defend itself from enemies. The sharp nails on its inner toes can easily rip flesh so the Cassowary is capable of killing humans. This bird is now on the verge of extinction due to habitat destruction and human activities.

Emu, Dromaius novaehollandiae, inhabits a variety of open-country habitats of Australia where they live in pairs or small parties and feed on plant matters and insects. During breeding season, female emus lay large, thick-shelled, dark-green eggs which the male will incubate until they hatch. Emus are now commercially farmed for their red meat, leather and oil. Emu oil is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and is widely used in the production of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Education Station

Bird School

Bird School is an education station that focuses on teaching children about Malaysian birds, the relationship between birds and human beings, and providing a deeper insight on the overview of a bird. Learn how to be a bird watcher, or marvel at the creative architectural skills of a bird in building its nest. If that is not enough, take a closer look at our Malaysian birds on display or visit our Egg Corner to learn about the egg development of a chick and the toughness of an Ostrich Egg.

Though the school may cater mostly for children, there are also interesting facts that adults can enjoy. With one species of hornbill being the state bird of Sarawak, curious adult can learn about the legends of our hornbills. Not only that, visitors can also admire our Malaysian nocturnal birds that are rarely seen by humans.

Oriental Bird Aviary

Adding to the collection is the Violet Turaco from Africa, and a species of toucan, namely the Channel-billed Toucan which is regarded as the New World ‘hornbill’ species. This beautiful bird has a characteristic black plumage and bright, vibrantly coloured facial features.
