[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chilean Flamingoes, Chicago

A new flock of Chilean flamingoes has taken residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago in a renovated home that resembles their natural habitat. The new flamingo enclosure provides a level, wet expanse that slopes gently toward the water and thick plantings designed to offer the flamingos the sense of colony size and isolation that encourages them to breed.

The Chilean flamingos are native to the Andes Mountains, are much hardier than American flamingos (which were the former inhabitants of the previous facility) and so are better suited to Chicago's weather.
