Pic(k) of the Week: Flamboyance of flamingos

Flamboyance of flamingos

A flock of flamingos = a "flamboyance." Indeed!
The American flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) is a large species of flamingo closely related to the greater flamingo and Chilean flamingo, native to the Neotropics. It is also known as the Caribbean flamingo, although it is also present in the Galápagos Islands. It is the only flamingo that naturally inhabits North America (Florida and the Florida Keys).
