JW Marriott Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa in Palm Desert CA


The flock of Chilean Flamingos are maintained and cared for by the staff at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert. Flamingos usually have their wings clipped to prevent them from flying away. The species is listed as near threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Due to Covid-19 the JW Marriott Resort and Spa is closed but you can visit their ground.

Amongst the Flamingos you will see white and black swans and ducks. Please remember to wear your masks and practice social distancing.


Venture out and enjoy the aquatic birds!
