ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An exhibit four years in the making is now open at the zoo in Chehaw.
You can now see Flamingos, multiple varieties of Ibis and a Blue-Winged Kookaburra in the aviary.
The final details are not 100 percent complete, but the staff put the birds ahead of time so they can acclimate to the cooling weather.
In the coming months, even more birds will be added to the exhibit.
"This project is actually the anchor to several other projects that we have planned. This is really just the start, and we can start working on some of those other animal exhibits as well," said Morgan Burnette, Director of Community Engagement.
Chehaw is planning on expanding their bear and red wolf exhibits, as well as adding several new exhibits in the near future.
