Miami, Florida

The unique feature of Hialeah Park is its great flock of flamingos.  These birds were imported from Cuba and South America and in 1939 for the first time, flamingos were raised to maturity in this country.  That first season 62 birds were hatched at Hialeah and this year there were almost one hundred.  The young birds are white and take on their rich coloring with maturity.  Flamingos are fed a mixture of boiled rice, dried shredded shrimp, grains and cod liver oil.
