Birdwatching Experience at Awana Resort

A couple of weeks ago, Team E.T.A had the opportunity to experience birdwatching activities with birdwatchers from all around the world in conjunction of Wings of KKB 2016: Selangor International Birds Race. The event was sponsored by Resorts World Genting.

Wings of KKB 2016: Selangor International Bird Race is a bird watching competition that requires participants to move from one altitude to another, consequently giving the participants the opportunity to spot different species of birds in accordance with their habitat at different altitude.

The two days event kicked off in Kuala Kubu Bharu and ended in Awana Resorts.

There is not much interesting to share about on the first day apart from school children going for explore race and bird watching, but the second day was fascinating, so we will be sharing about that.

After breakfast on the second day, we were brought by PR executives Mr. Ho Wei En and Ms. Irene Chua brought us to the Bird Watching Platform at Awana Genting for some birdwatching with the Wings of KKB 2016: Selangor International Birds Race.

We walked deep into the jungle after doing some birdwatching at the platform. We were told that we could spot more birds if we trek deeper. And we actually did.

Other than birds, we managed to captures pics of other creatures too. And here’s a cute little squirrel.

We may not be participants in the bird race but it is fun nevertheless to join in the fun and do a little bird race of our own. We spotted at least 20 species of exotic birds residing in the vicinity of Awana Resort during our little birdwatching trip.

Thank you Resorts World Genting for the opportunity given and thank you Ms.Irene, Mr.Ho Wei En and Ms.Chung Wan Ni for taking care of us during the entire event.
