Artist's Description

Adelaide Zoo – Canon 40D 300mm

One of only two Chilean Flamingos in captivity in Australia, our flamingo arrived at Adelaide Zoo in 1948.

Our Chilean and Greater Flamingo both live in the Flamingo Grotto. This grotto was constructed in 1885 and is the oldest exhibit in the zoo.

Though the Chilean Flamingo is the smaller of our two flamingos, it is more domineering. Its plumage is also much pinker than the Greater Flamingo. It can be differentiated by its greyish legs with pink “knees”, and also by the larger amount of black on the bill (more than half).

It has an age related visual impairment, meaning it can not see well. However it is very familiar with its exhibit so can move around the grotto with ease. Most mornings it will stand on the edge of the pond, stretch its wings and then walk directly into the pond.

Like the Greater Flamingo, it does not like to be hurried and will walk slowly and sedately everywhere.
