Caribbean Flamingo

Windows to the Wild

Creatures small but great make their home in Windows to the Wild: birds, mammals and primates from around the globe, including African-crested porcupines, hyacinth macaws and tiny emperor tamarins. You’ll also encounter our three resident meerkats scampering in and out of sight in their sandy habitat. You’ll also find our large colony of pink-plumed Caribbean flamingos here, too—and you’re more likely to hear them before you see them. These birds like to squawk!
