Flamingo born at zoo

        The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden added another “first” to its resume when a greater flamingo chick successfully hatched this month — the first such hatching in the zoo's 125-year history.

        The zoo received a flock of about 40 greater flamingos in September 1998. Because the birds are often found in flocks of thousands, these 40 needed to get acclimated before they could breed.

        Visitors can now see the zoo's fuzzy, gray flamingo chick with its mother and father in the zoo's African Veldt.
