AY CARUMBA! – Chilean Flamingo chick caught practising some flamenco poses!

Our Chilean Flamingo chicks are now around 5-7 weeks old and starting to be much more bold – standing out in the open with the adult birds, stretching their legs and generally getting the hang of being Flamingos.

These images, captured earlier today show the youngsters copying many of the adults’ stretches and stances – resulting in a juvenile Flamingo Ballet of poses!
