Royal Belum State Park is famous for its collections of birds especially when you paddle down those lonely streams and bay in the light of morning. Some 316 bird species have been recorded by Malaysian Nature Society, many of which are restricted
to the Sundaic lowland and montane forests, have so far been recorded in the area (Royal Belum and Belum-Temenggor Forest Complex).
These include eight species listed as Vulnerable: Mountain Peacock Pheasant Polyplectron inopinatum, Wallace’s Hawk Eagle Spizaetus nanus, Masked Finfoot Heliopais personata, Large Green Pigeon Treron capellei,
Short-toed Coucal Centropus rectunguis, Bluebanded Kingfisher Alcedo euryzona, Plain-pouched
Hornbill Aceros subruficollis and Straw-headed Bulbul Pycnonotus zeylanicus.
In addition, some 56 other species are considered Near Threatened. The area is of outstanding importance for threatened Sundaic forest birds, and this high avifaunal diversity, coupled with the large number threatened species, has led to the MNS declaring Royal belum and BTFC one of the 55 Important Bird Areas (IBA) in Malaysia.
