May 10/Day 130 - Flamingoes!

Fun facts about flamingoes:
  • The flamingo’s pink color, which is very important for stimulating reproduction, comes from the food they eat, including algae, diatoms, and small aquatic insects and crustaceans.
  • Flamingos like company! In East Africa, more than one million lesser flamingos may gather together—forming the largest flocks known among birds today.  
  • Standing on one leg really is their most comfortable resting position.
