Plumas rosadas y patas largas. Al extender su vuelo se puede apreciar una franja negra en la parte inferior de sus alas. Pico blanco y negro alargado y curvo que favorece su aliemntación en pequeños charcos y lagunas. Visto en la zona costera de Camuy, circundante a la playa Peñon Amador.
REAL CRUMMY image...but again, solely for documentation. This was one of two banded individuals initially discovered in Texas. When the band numbers were researched, one bird was determined to be an escapee from a Kansas zoo and the other was a wild bird hatched and banded in the Yucatan. After drifting back and forth between Texas and Louisiana for a few years, the wild bird spent some time by itself in Grand Chenier, Cameron Parish, Louisiana. Seen here with Michael J. Musumeche.
This represents the first accepted Louisiana state record.
Flamingos or Flamingoes ( Brazilian pronunciation (help·info)) are a type of wading bird in the genus Phoenicopterus (from Greek: φοινικόπτερος, 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.
