Birds at London Zoo


Pelicans and Flamingos

The pool of pelicans and flamingos at London Zoo. Evidently they get on well enough with each-other that they can be kept in the same enclosure. There is no lid over the enclosure, and these birds are kept there without them flying away.

Flamingos kept in the zoo need to be given a special diet of pink shellfish to keep the colour in their feathers.
