Get Close with our Chilean flamingos and their South American feathered friends! Join one of our Bird Keepers inside the flamingo exhibit where you will learn all about how we care for these fascinating birds.  The experience starts with a tour inside our Flamingo holding building.  Our Bird Keepers will go over all the intricate details in caring for flamingos and why this building is so important to their care.  After the tour of the building, participants will be led out on to the exhibit where they will get a closer view of the birds and spend time learning more about their natural history.  During this time participants will be able to toss food to the flamingos and waterfowl.  Participants will have the opportunity to watch how these birds stir up the water with their feet and use their specialized beaks to filter for food. You will feel like you are part of Tracy Aviary’s very own Flamboyance!
