Penang Bird Park (Top 10 outing siries)

i have been making a lot of trip once brought this camera. we establish a team call Snap Sick Suck (3S). Shukri, Zairi, Shahree & Jufree was a team member. All of us use to be an office-mate before. Now everyone went separate life but we still contact each other. Since i got no idea wut to post to this blog for moment, so i guest let share some of the shoot from this old DSLR.

This picture i took during my visit to penang. entry fees is RM15/adult, extra RM1 for camera. locate in Seberang Jaya Penang. check map here. this park consider to be the first & largest bird park of its kind in Malaysia. Established since 1988, the 5-acre park on the mainland portion of Penang State, has a collection of more that 300 species of birds from all over the world, of which more than 150 species are of Malaysian Species. i still novice in this photog world, so feel free to leave comment & advice.

Unknown to many, even Penangites, there is actually a Bird Park right here in Penang. However, because it is located on the mainland side of Penang state, it suffers the fate of being less popular among tourists than other places of attraction on Penang island. Despite that, the Penang Bird Park is probably a much better place to visit than some of the other overpriced places. . 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.

The whole place covers an area of 5 acres, and I have to say, it is huge! Allocate at least 3-4 hours if you really want to see every single birds and animals there. Most of the birds are caged up, so it is a little bit difficult to get close to them, and to take photographs for that matter. However, there is a area where one can feed the birds yourself by purchasing worms at a reasonable price. There have a bird show that starts at 11.30am and 3.30pm everyday. I didn't catch it, but I guess in this show you can get up close with the birds and see them do all sorts of tricks.

With more than 300 species of birds from all over the world, Penang Bird Park is a "Heaven for Photographers". Many species of birds have been trained and tamed to "pose" for photography purpose. Penang Bird Park is also very active in the conservation of endangered birds species, especially the Malaysian birds, eg. the Nicobar Pigeon, the Peacock Pheasants, the Fireback Pheasants, Partridges, the Owls, Hornbills, Eagles and others.

pernah pi sana, tapi rasanya tempat tu kurang dijaga. Bukanlah kotor sangat tapi tak rasanya itik yang dok berenang dalam kolam tu pun mesti tak tahan bau air. saya sebenarnya tak suka konsep zoo yang kurung haiwan dalam sangkar yang saya rasa terlalu kecil untuk diorang.

Lagi suka kalau ada zoo yang open burung boleh suka hati terbang dalam sangkar besar. just my two cents.
