Bathing Chilean Flamingo – diptych / collage

The Chilean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis, Wikipedia ) is a large species that breeds in temperate South America from Ecuador and Peru to Chile and Argentina and east to Brazil; it has been introduced into Germany and the Netherlands (colony on the border, Zwilbrockervenn). There also a small population in Utah and California. Like all flamingos it lays a single chalky white egg on a mud mound.
IUCN conservation status: Near Threatened (source: Wikipedia)
