Idaho Falls Zoo flamingos make their way back to their habitat

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) – The Idaho Falls Zoo welcomed their flamingos back to their main habitat.

On Tuesday, the zoo asked the public to attend for their "very special assignment." They called it the "Flamingo Move."

Attendees lined up and stood still, creating a "human pathway" as zookeepers helped move them safely back to their habitat. The zoo asked attendees to stand still so they wouldn't startle the birds.

The flamingos were in a smaller, secluded habitat to protect them from the bird flu that was circulating earlier this year.

After extensive research and talking with federal agents, the zoo decided it was safe enough to bring them back in their main habitat for the public to enjoy.
