Let's Flamingle!

June's Birds of the Month are FLAMINGOS, and to celebrate, we are bringing back Let's Flamingle! Last fall we celebrated the three flamingo chicks that hatched in August, and this time around we’ll be celebrating the whole flock!

At this time of year, the flock is demonstrating fun breeding and nesting behaviors, which may lead to cute little chicks again this year. Plus, if you haven’t seen the chicks since they were cute little fluff balls last fall, you are due for a visit. Their appearances are changing every day, with more pink feathers coming in slowly, making for an interesting sight! 

At the event, The Bird Feeder Cafe will be transformed into a pink paradise with pink decorations and snacks, as well as flamingo crafts and activities! We will have Chilean flamingo Keeper Talks and a visit from the pink Bird Show stars, the spoonbill sisters. Build up your leg muscles, because we’ll be practicing our one-legged flamingo poses in a standing competition! The winner will be awarded a behind-the-scenes experience with our flamingo flock. Don’t forget to cool off with a strawberry Dole Whip or Pink Lemonade from The Bird Feeder Cafe!
