Putrajaya Bird Race 2019

Good news for bird watchers in the Klang Valley as the Putrajaya Bird Race 2019 takes place from 15 to 17 November and at Taman Wetlands here. This is known to be a new birding event held at the administrative capital of Malaysia.

Though this event may sound unheard of, let me assure you that Putrajaya is now one of the up and coming destinations for bird watching in Malaysia, with quite a few notable birding locations found here.

Previously, I had written about the Putrajaya Bird Race and Festival, which apparently takes place in the early part of the year. But I have never attended it; hence I look forward to that particular birding event next year.

And for this year, the bird race held in Putrajaya is also something that I am inquisitive about. Hence I should be paying a visit to see how this event is held.

How Many Bird Species Are Found In Putrajaya?

There are a total of 203 bird species found at the Taman Wetlands in Putrajaya. With such many birds found here, it will make any bird watcher or photographer very happy.

The checklist of Putrajaya birds was compiled by the local birders over the years too. Among the many birds found here, you can expect many shorebirds and migratory birds at Taman Wetlands.

If you are a local bird watcher or photographer in the Klang Valley area, this would be a good event to attend. And if you are a visiting birder from another country during this time, do attend this event.

This event is also nature friendly, and you are encouraged to bring your kids, especially to learn more about the birds and the wetlands. No experience is better than doing it at the actual place.

Many local birders, bird watchers and bird photographers are looking forward to attending the Putrajaya Bird Race 2019. I will also be heading there as well, so I hope to see you there too.
