Red flamingos back outside

Animal news | 31 May 2021

Flamingosin the walk-in aviary.

At long last our red flamingos have been able to leave the flamingo house for their breeding island in the new flamingo aviary. Now that the Dresden Veterinary Office has abolished the requirement to keep birds indoors to protect them against avian flu, our flamingos can use their outdoor enclosures once again. And it’s high time that they started their courtship and breeding rituals! To help the breeding process along in the new enclosure, our keepers have built a few mud towers. Hopefully our flamingos will use these and upgrade them to their own specifications.
The new walk-in flamingo aviary is open to all visitors, and offers a wonderfully clear view of our beautiful birds. Our roseate spoonbills and scarlet ibis will also be joining the flamingos in the new enclosure from next week.
