Greater Flamingo



About Greater Flamingo
They breed in very large colonies in shallow water. They build cone-shaped nests made usually of mud. The female will lay 1-2 white speckled eggs, taken care of by the female for 30-32 days.

This beautiful graceful bird has to stay in shallow lakes and lagoons of salty or highly alkaline water, where it lives in large flocks of hundreds or even thousands of birds. They spend most of their time wading in the water and feeding by day and night. Each bird sweeps its bill upside down and moves it side to side while it walks forward. It uses it's tongue to rapidly pump the water in and out, and traps edible particles on the comb-like filters resembling those of plankton-feeding baleen whales.

They fly well, often in lines or V-formations, with their long necks and legs stretched out.

Pairs may stay together for life, and all lay and incubate their eggs at the same time, so their young are all the same age.
