In a release, officials said, "Throughout the year, SeaWorld's animal care and training teams continually introduce new ways to enrich the animal environments in the park. Unique activities, such as putting lettuce among the pumpkins pique the flamingos' interest and offer something new for them to see and explore. Holistic behavioral programs like this one focus on health, exercise and provide additional mental challenge and fun for the animals."

While Floridians are not yet feeling crisp fall air when they step outside, SeaWorld's aviculturists said they "couldn't wait to give the tropical birds a taste of the new season coupled with a peek at its prettiest colors."   

The First Day of Fall has arrived at SeaWorld Orlando with a pumpkin patch fit for flamingos!
