It is know for its first class bird watching destination in this region. It is home of 250 species of wild migratory birds and they fly across from as far asa Northern siberia, islands of Japan and neighbouring land mass searching for new feeding grounds to escape the freezing winter up North.
The sightings is truly a rare treat to bird watchers. Siberian thrush from Siberia, are found in Fraser's Hill for
couple months before migrating southwards to Australia and New Zealand. They will fly back home to the North in March and April when the sun moves up to the Tropic of Cancer.
Migratory birds were attracted to Fraser's Hills because of its cool climate within the undisturbed jungle, green clad mountainous terrain that make them feel at home. Due to that Fraser's Hill had been a bird sanctuary.
