Description

We were surprised to learn that there were large numbers (hundreds) of Greater Flamingos at the Ulcinj Saltpans. There were several small flocks pretty close to us, and then in the distance there was a massive area of pink on the water.
These are the same species we saw in Namibia last summer, so they have a pretty wide range.

Description

Imperial County, California, US

Many years ago when the the Salton Sea was a resort destination many places brought in flamingos. They were actually breeding and numbering the 100s if not 1000s. With the demise of the area their numbers have dwindled to possibly this one last bird. Sometimes imported exotics don't establish themselves.

Description

El flamenco del Caribe alcanza de 1,20 a 1,40 m de altura. Es un ave esbelta: el macho pesa en promedio 2,8 kg y la hembra 2,2 kg. Es el flamenco más grande del continente, y el segundo del mundo, superado por el flamenco común (Phoenicopterus roseus). Su color puede variar desde el rosa pálido hasta un carmesí o bermellón, dependiendo de la zona donde viva y de la cantidad de crustáceos con altos contenidos carotenoides que consuma.

El flamenco del Caribe puede verse en lagos poco profundos y aguas costeras. Está especializado en alimentarse en lagos con grandes concentraciones salinas o alcalinas. Obtiene su alimento desde el sedimento limoso del fondo. Estas aguas contienen suficiente alimento para satisfacer a un gran número de estas aves, que consumen insectos, camarones y pequeñas plantas, diatomeas y otras algas.
