Bird Nest Industry in Kedah, Malaysia

I visited Padang Seria, which is in Kedah and 50 km from Penang Island. It is developing a bird nest industry. Over 100 shophouses have been converted into "bird nest house". The swiflets use the house to build their nests to raise the young swiflets.

My friend told me that a few other towns in Kedah and Johore are also developing this new industry. Bird nest has some medicinal value and is also a delicacy.

I shall be uploading some photos soon.
