After visiting the Silverback Gorillas, I moved over to the Pink Flamingos while visiting the Oklahoma City Zoo last month:

Flamingo feeding crop milk to her young. Flamingos produce bird milk through glands along the digestive tract. Young flamingos eat this milk until they develop enough to eat mature food (usually for about two months). Until then, they feed exclusively on this milk.

Thanks Gary...I appreciate it.

I don't spend much time around flamingos in Chicagoland, so when I was photographing #3 I had no idea what was going on. Naturally, I assumed that the young flamingo was being fed. But, this went on for 30 minutes and I didn't see any exchange of food...or the adult flamingo moving to secure more food. Only later, when I did a Google search, did a learn about this milk feeding method!
