Flamingos are a kind of wading bird with a distinctive brightly colored plumage on their head, neck, and chest.
Have you ever waded in the water?
Flamingos are an animal widely associated with the color pink. They are very recognizable because of their height, long legs, and distinctive necks. Flamingos are native to parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. They are also found in the Caribbean Islands.
The flamingo’s body is covered in feathers that can be bright pink or a duller white. Males have more vibrant feathers than females. This is typical with many birds, not just flamingos. Flamingo feathers change color depending on where they live and what time it is in their natural environment year-round.
Habitat and Diet of the Flamingo
A flamingo’s diet includes a variety of food sources such as algae, shrimp, and even eels. The types of food vary depending on the location of the flamingo and what is available in its habitat. Generally speaking, a flamingo will consume an average of about one pound of food per day to maintain their weight.
Flamingos live in warm coastal regions or wetlands where they can find an abundance of water for drinking and feeding on plants like algae that grow in salty water like estuaries or mangroves.
