GALLERY OF FLAMINGO SIGHTINGS IN NORTH AMERICA & CLIPS................Shipping from our online catalog boasts ONLY $5.00 per item ordered! There are 5-species of FLAMINGOS in the world. The Greater Flamingo is the largest while the Lessor Flamingo is the smallest. FLAMINGOS reside in tropical areas. They lay 1-egg in a volcano shaped nest made of mounded mud, rocks and feathers. FLAMINGO males and females take turns incubating their eggs for 26-31 days. Both parents feed the young. FLAMINGOS eat seeds, algae, crustaceans and mollusks. Colonies of FLAMINGOS can be very large. The signature pink color of FLAMINGOS comes from alpha and beta-caratene found in their food sources in the wild. Captive FLAMINGOS are fed special diets to keep their pink coloring.
