my 1 year old meets an ostrich

The tall and short of it is that my tiny baby met the tallest bird he ever saw at the birdpark in Labuan. My baby was pretty thrilled. The bird was pretty indifferent at the meeting.

We landed at the bird park almost at 5 p.m., and already one door was closed signalling that it was closing-time. We didnt have much time to look around. We ran through the aviaries — some places were smelling rather foul, i think because because of all the fowl present. Or perhaps it was the toilets…
We quickly saw the birds, the fountains, the play area … and it was time to leave.
The guidebook says that the birdpark is set amidst a lush rainforest and is home to 580 species of birds. I thought of fellow blogger covertop — she would be at home here. Apparently there are hornbills, mynas, herons, shamas and kingfishers here. I could identify only two — peacocks and the ostriches.

The bird park is open between 10 am to 5 pm daily — there are birdshows and birdfeedings at 11 am and 11 30 am respectively.
Entrace: Rm 3 adults and Rm 1 children

    Hello there, my friend! Yes, I would be at home there, although I would much prefer birds in their natural environment without enclosures. Still, it is fun to observe birds, and the entrance fee to the Labuan Bird Park is really low compared to what they charge in KL. LOL at your thrilled baby and the indifferent ostrich!
