Petulu Heron Bird Colony Watch Point, Bali Reviews
We saw a bunch of birds. They mainly reposted at the second spot, so the proprietor guided us all up the road where we could get a better view. If say it's worth making a trip here!
Worth visiting especially if you have an interest in birds. Birds arrive late afternoon and continue after sunset. It's unusual to see colonies of different birds roosting in a village. The birds (little egret, cattle egret and Java pond heron) get on surprisingly well with the villagers and each other. The egrets tend to roost together in the same trees. There is a covered viewing platform for people to view the birds, cost 20k.
Great if you're interested in birds or do birdwatching. Bring a camera and a pair of binoculars. It's just a plain viewing deck with plastic chairs. They serve local beer, but that's pretty much it. If you get there early (before sunset), you can talk to the guy that tends to the place, and he will tell you all about the birds. Also do some research and reading about the place before going because they have legends and stories about the herons that nest there. My partner and I enjoy birdwatching. We got to the place before everyone else, so we were able to chat up the guy that takes care of the place, who genuinely loves birds. We didn't have to pay for anything. We just took a motorbike to the place. Aside from the herons there also are a lot of kingfishers and munias in the ricefields.
Is a sight in itself. Going for a sunset is delightful. Though do watch out for the bird droppings constantly falling onto the roads from the canopy of trees above
Was super excited about this.. but let down when I got there. Place is nice.. ans could see a small part of sunset from the balcony.. owners were nice... but unless you run a good zoom lens and camera you wont get any good pictures and see much. Most of the birds actually just flew to forest 300m away so we saw obly large flocks at distance. Not worth the 20 000 unless u really into bird watching (not photography). Best part was playing table tennis at down stairs with lokal teenagers after I left the balcony disappointed.
