Turks and Caicos - Pink Flamingos

Thursday, 5 May 2011

Pink Flamingos have a habitat on the Provo Golf Course on Turks and Caicos. I've never seen them in the wild so it was such a treat to take a golf cart ride out to watch them and snap some photos.

There were dozens of them! I did a bit of research since I don't know much about the birds. They are "waders" and often stomp one of their webbed feet to stir up mud and food. Their beaks are shaped in a way that allows them to sift through water and eat brine shrimp and blue-green algae.

Seeing the amazing birds was one of my highlights of vacation.
