Hi David how goes it. Yea the flamingos are tough, really small flocks in pretty wild areas. I was lucky with this guy. Look at their design David for clues as to where they hang mud flats especially around mangroves, tidal pools, they sift ooze . Their main food is little shrimps btw this is what gives them their great color....... let me admen that really it's the shrimps larvae that is what was so vexing to zoologists when they first started to keep them in captivity they would lose their color without this component. Their is a nesting colony in FL bay other then that it is really hit or miss come on down and we will go on a flamingo hunt.
