Bird Photography at Kuala Lumpur

This trip was not a birding trip per-se, just a leisure holiday for 3 days - out of which I managed to squeeze out 2 hours of birding. I couldn't visit the best known birding locations in & around Kuala Lumpur. All that I could manage was a quick hop-around at KLCC Forest Eco Park.

Pros about KLCC Forest Eco Park:
  • Great location - very near to KL city center 
  • Good birding activity 
  • Dense trees and trails are serene 
  • Safe and secure 
  • Free access - no tickets 

Cons: 
  • Opens only at 9 AM 
  • Very hot and humid 
  • Canopy walk is very noisy because of human activity 

Some pics from the trip:
