It’s famous with the myth about a white crocodile breaking the dam and leading to a British officer being killed to the incident. How true about the white alligator nobody could confirm it. However , the incident has resulted in massive flooding that has killed many people and destruction of properties, with just an old mosque and a Buddhist temple that survived the flood .

Each group is provided with binoculars and a book ‘ Birds of Malaysia ” for the activity. We traveled to several locations said to be a favorite place of birds. During this activity we were asked to be more sensitive because the birds often hide behind trees and foliage . It is said there are hundreds of species of birds here and we were able to identify a number of species .

Among them are’Asia Glossy Starling ‘,’ Black Naped Oriole ‘,’ Magpie Robin ‘,’ Antwren ‘,’ Straw Headed Bulbul ‘,’ Black Headed Bulbul ‘,’ Fantail ‘,’ Bee- eater ‘,’ Paddyfield Pipit ‘ , ‘ Flower Pecker ‘ , and also some eagle . We are amazed and fascinated by the beauty of the Millennium Park location for visitors to see the birds , the atmosphere was so different and comfortable.

Although the weather was rather unfavourable, it did not dampen our enthusiasm for finding birds in the surrounding area . According to Mrs. Almaz Mokhtar , Town and Country Planning Officer , the birds here will have difficulties to fly if the weather is bad, and they will mostly only perch and nest in tree holes . However we are lucky to be able to see several species of birds fly in groups and heard the birds chirping but unfortunately we could not see the bird .

The experience in finding and identifying birds at Kuala Kubu Bharu was very fun and made ​​us excited to come back in the future to see the annual ‘ Bird Race ‘. ‘ Bird Race’ is a competition to identify the most bird species . The event is first in the state. Keep a lookout about in in the blog soon. 😀
