Wings of KKB 2016: Selangor International Bird Race is a bird watching competition that requires participants to move from one altitude to another, consequently giving the participants the opportunity to spot different species of birds in accordance with their habitat at different altitude. This yearly event is sponsored by Resorts World Genting.
The two days event kicked off in Kuala Kubu Bharu and ended in Awana Resorts and my family and I were invited by Resorts World Genting to experience some birdwatching actvities together with the birds race participants.
Not really much to tell about on the first day, but the second day is very interesting as we get to really do some birding. After breakfast on the second day, we were brought by PR executives Mr. Ho Wei En and Ms. Irene Chua to the Bird Watching Platform at Awana Genting for some birdwatching with the Wings of KKB 2016: Selangor International Birds Race participants.
There is this Bird watching area in Awana Resort.
And here is a bird watching platform. It is quite high so you are able to see quite far if you have binoculars.
We walked deep into the jungle after doing some birdwatching at the platform. It is quite misty that morning and we had to wait for a little bit to spot birds.

Squirrels spotted too.
We spotted at least 20 species of exotic birds residing in the vicinity of Awana Resort during our little birdwatching trip. Thank you Resorts World Genting for the opportunity given and we will surely go back for more birdwatching in Awana.
