Camera Critters: Caribbean Flamingo @ Flamingo Gardens, Florida



Because my sister and I had a late afternoon flight back home, we decided to take a post cruise tour of the Everglades and the Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida.

This sweet flamingo came close to us to eat some nibbles being offered by a fellow passenger on the tour.

This special sanctuary in the district of Davie in Florida, brings in birds and other species that have been hurt by either man or other animals and when they recover, they are released back into the wild. If somehow the owners cannot do this, then any offspring born will be released.

This species is a Caribbean Flamingo and his bright scarlet plumage is from the Vitamin A rich shellfish and other food given to him. In the wilds, Flamingo feed on Algae and Algae rich shellfish which characterises its pink plumage. In the sanctuary they slightly over-do their diet, hence the scarlet colouring.

My sister and I went on a cruise to the Caribbean at Christmas, one of the destinations was at St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. These Iguanas were sunbathing and wandering about the docks near Charlotte Amalie.

Have a great weekend everyone!
