Why Penang Bird Park is special ?

More than 3,000 birds in this park are carefully and scientifically housed in more than 150 cages for the breeding and conservation purpose. While the 2 Geodesic Domes and 2 giant sized Walk-in-Aviaries, keep hundreds of tamed birds which offers priceless memory and exciting moment for visitors, after hand-feeding them, exotic birds ranging from tiny Sunbirds to huge, gigantic 8-foot tall Ostriches frolic in an environment that imitates their natural habitat. Penang Bird Park is particularly proud of its hornbills, sunbirds, and pheasants collection. Penang Bird Park is the bird-park loved by the expert ornithologists as well as for the people of all ages who love birds.

We visited the Penang Bird Park and we liked it, especially our teenage daughter who is an animal fanatic. Granted, it is not easy to find and the entrance is not very impressive, and it is rather local instead of a manufactured Disneyland-like experience, but that is part of its attraction. The Penang Bird Park is full of local and Southeast Asian species. The hornbills, pheasants, and peacocks were particularly interesting. Most of these species you don't have a prayer of seeing in the wild as the region is crowded with concrete high rises and palm oil plantations. We found the birds healthy and well cared for; the peacocks were some of the healthiest specimens we've seen anywhere. Our animal-loving daughter would have protested loudly otherwise. An escape from the plastic theme park atmosphere. The best thing for Penang Bird Park would be more visitors who appreciate a somewhat localized experience instead of another version of a shopping mall. P.S. This is not the only place we visited in Malaysia where the toilets are below par.
