Description

On a recent visit to the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington, D.C. I had the opportunity to capture this image of a resting pink flamingo. this is actually a Florida flamingo. Here's some more information on Flamingos from Wikipedia:
Flamingos ( Brazilian pronunciation (help�info)) are a type of wading bird in the genus Phoenicopterus (from Greek: ���� meaning "purple wing"), the only genus in the family Phoenicopteridae. There are four flamingo species in the Americas and two species in the Old World.
Flamingos are very social birds; they live in colonies whose population can number in the thousands. These large colonies are believed to serve three purposes for the flamingos: avoiding predators, maximizing food intake, and using scarce suitable nesting sites more efficiently.[15] Before breeding, flamingo colonies split into breeding groups of between about 15 and 50 birds. Both males and females in these groups perform synchronized ritual displays.[16] The members of a group stand together and display to each other by stretching their necks upwards, then uttering calls while head-flagging, and then flapping their wings.[17] The displays do not seem to be directed towards an individual but instead occur randomly.[17] These displays stimulate "synchronous nesting" (see below) and help pair up those birds who do not already have mates.[16]

Flamingoes form strong pair bonds of one male and one female, although in larger colonies flamingos sometimes change mates, presumably because there are more mates to choose from).[18] Flamingo pairs establish and defend nesting territories. They locate a suitable spot on the mudflat to build a nest (the spot is usually chosen by the female).[17] It is during nest building that copulation usually occurs. Nest building is sometimes interrupted by another flamingo pair trying to commandeer the nesting site for their own use. Flamingos aggressively defend their nesting sites. Both the male and the female contribute to building the nest, and to defending the nest and egg.[citation needed]

After the chicks hatch, the only parental expense is feeding.[19] Both the male and the female feed their chicks with a kind of crop milk, produced in glands lining the whole of the upper digestive tract (not just the crop). Production is stimulated by a hormone called prolactin. The milk contains fat, protein, and red and white blood cells. (Pigeons and doves�Columbidae�also produce a crop milk (just in the glands lining the crop), which contains less fat and more protein than flamingo crop milk.)[citation needed]

For the first six days after the chicks hatch, the adults and chicks stay in the nesting sites. At around seven to twelve days old, the chicks begin to move out of their nests and explore their surroundings. When they are two weeks old, the chicks congregate in groups, called "microcr�es", and their parents leave them alone. After a while, the microcr�es merge into "cr�es" containing thousands of chicks. Chicks that do not stay in their cr�es are vulnerable to predators
The Old World flamingos were considered by the Ancient Egyptians to be the living representation of the god Ra,[23] while in Ancient Rome, their tongues were considered a delicacy.[24]

In the Americas, the Moche people of ancient Peru worshipped nature.[25] They placed emphasis on animals and often depicted flamingos in their art,[26] while in The Bahamas they are the national bird. Also, Andean miners have killed flamingos for their fat, believed to be a cure for tuberculosis.[27] In the United States, pink plastic flamingo statues are popular lawn ornaments
