An amazing diversity of birds can be found at Taman Rimba Kiara - many of which are protected. The park is frequented by casual bird watchers on a regular basis and is also used by birding groups who organise bird walks to share knowledge of and observe the variety of birds. My Garden Birdwatch (MYGB) drew up a list of birds that have been observed at the park - it's an amazing list of 54 varieties! How many have you seen?
