Flamingo debut!

March 23, 2013 - 09:00am

This spring break, get your flamingo fix at the Oregon Zoo.

A flock 21 lesser flamingos have waded into the newly remodeled Africa Rainforest aviary, where the pink birds can be seen by zoo visitors starting March 23. The remodeled aviary boasts a pool designed specially for them, a new nesting area, and separate holding areas for the flamingos and the other birds that share the aviary. The renovation is part of a larger aviary upgrade project funded by individual, corporate and foundation contributions through the Oregon Zoo Foundation and included grants from the Spirit Mountain Community Fund, The Collins Foundation, Samuel S. Johnson Foundation and the Wessinger Foundation.

Now through April 7: wear pink to the zoo to receive $1.25 off of pink cotton candy, also known as "Flamingo Floss!"
