American Flamingo


Product Details

#51 American Flamingo

Long-legged, long-necked and downright unmistakable, the American Flamingo flocks in shallow, saline lagoons of the Caribbean and Central and northern South America. They feed on algae and aquatic invertebrates like brine shrimp, and the pigments in their food give them their pink coloration. Until 1900, flamingos from the Bahamas regularly migrated to what is now Florida’s Everglades National Park.
