ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Construction continues on the new flamingo exhibit at Chehaw Park.

Workers are almost ready to install the roof over the exhibit.

After the roof is done, crews will install wire mesh, artwork and additional landscaping.

The flamingos and other birds such as multiple Ibis and an African gray parrot, are ready for their new home.

With the pool being done, the next hard part is the roof. After that, hopefully, we'll go fairly quickly," said Ben Roberts

The Ibis are on display,the flamingos are in a holding area.

Chehaw hopes the new exhibit will be complete by the fall.
