This flamingo lives on the coast, salt marshes and lagoons in the islands of the Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic and the Galapagos, as well as in Central America and the north of South America.

It is the only flamingo which naturally inhabits North America.

It differs from the common and Chilean flamingos in that it has bright red plumage.

Although its numbers are still quite large -there are about 80-90.000 remaining- they are gradually decreasing due to the constant destruction of their environment (like many other species).

The American flamingo is a tall, pink bird that stands on one leg. It is a homeothermic endotherm; an animal that keeps a consistent temperature that is regulated within its body.

Adult American flamingos are smaller on average than greater flamingos but are the largest flamingos in the Americas. They measure from 120 to 145 cm (47 to 57 in) tall. The males weigh an average of 2.8 kg (6.2 lb), while females average 2.2 kg (4.9 lb).

  1. This American flamingo has migrated to the Netherlands. 😉 It’s certainly warm enough here this week to feel like parts of the Americas! Truly, though, sad to see such beautiful birds being displaced.

  2. Where we used to live in Spain there are large salt lakes and the local authorities provided landing strips for the flamingos when a road was built between the lakes. The salinas mostly had a deep pink or mauve hue, especially as the sun was setting.
