Our Chilean flamingo flock is back in their main habitat! We know you’ve missed seeing them since they were housed in their night house to protect them from a particularly rampant bout of avian flu.
A chick has hatched to our flock of Chilean flamingos! As we celebrate this moment, our animal care team is reflecting on the reasons behind this success – and making plans to take the lessons learned to guide the care of our flock in the future.
Our group of Chilean flamingos was rounded up to receive routine checkups last week.
Happy International Flamingo Day! Celebrate with us by learning a little more about these unique pink creatures.
We are happy to announce that Chilean flamingos have hatched at the Zoo for the first time in our 25-year history!
