Large pink and red wading bird, related to and similar to the heron, a stork, and spoonbill but with a longer neck, its feet are webbed, and a unique down bent bill.
Flamingos live in a tropical climate, although at times colonies have been observed high in the Andes. The American flamingo is now rarely seen in Florida nesting chiefly in the West Indies. Its plumage eight vermilion with black marks on the wings; a common South Asian and African flamingo is scarlet with black wing feathers.

Flamingo, a wading bird. There are six species. The American (or greater) flamingo, a typical species, is the only one native to the United States. The American flamingo grows to six feet (1.8 m) in height. It is pinkish white with blackedged wings. It has long, thin legs and small feet with webbed toes. The neck is long and slender and is usually held in an S-shaped curve.The flamingo is a beautiful bird with stiltlike legs and a long, curved neck. In the wild, flamingos vary in color from bright red to pale pink.One food flamingos like to eat is algae (AL jee). Some of the types of algae that flamingos feed on contain pigments called carotenoids (kuh ROT uh noydz). These carotenoids make the flamingos feathers their pink or red color.Flamingoes belong to the family Phoenicopter-idae. The American flamingo is Phoenicopterus ruber.
