New birds on Lake Victoria

By Jaime Wilson, Zoo Blog Keeper
The next time you are at the Zoo take a moment and look out on Lake Victoria. Really look. There is an amazing collection of native and rare water fowl including the very popular Flamingos. Recently the Zoo has added a few new species at are easy to spot. Hooded mergansers with their head plumes, Cinnamon teals and their striking red color, and Northern pintails with their contrasting dark and light feathers.
