These famous pink birds can be found in warm, watery regions on many continents. They favor environments like estuaries and saline or alkaline lakes. Considering their appearance, flamingos are surprisingly fluid swimmers, but really thrive on the extensive mud flats where they breed and feed. Greater flamingos are likely to be the only tall, pink bird in any given locale. They also have long, lean, curved necks and black-tipped bills with a distinctive downward bend. The Greater Flamingo is also the National Bird of The Bahamas. This capture was made 1989 at the Inagua National Park on the southern most Island of Inagua, Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

Originally from the The Islands I was born in Nassau, historic Capital of the 700 Islands Of The Bahamas Archipelago. I am a former Print Media Journalist & Broadcast Journalist (News Anchor & Editor) for radio and television. I am also retired as Consul General after two decades in the Diplomatic Service of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. I studied Photography at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale (A College of Professional Studies) and at the New York Institute of Photography.

    Amazing! I love your bird pictures and this is one of my favorites. You must live in a wonderful place, or do you capture this beautiful creatures while you travel?

  • I travel, visit aviaries, and any place elese where I can find birds. This particular capture, however, was made on the Island of Inagua (Bahamas) where I was born.
