Artist's Description

Taken at Tracy Aviary, Salg Lake City, Utah
Chilean flamingos live in flocks of dozens to tens of thousands of birds along shallow, brackish lakes and rivers throughout South America. The pale pink color of their feathers comes from the food they eat—shrimp and tiny algae—and they are easily identified by their long, skinny legs and thick, curved black and white bill. It takes up to two years for a flamingo to gain its color, so chicks spend the first few years of their life sporting white to grey feathers and slowly growing their pink plumage over time.
