I didn't.

Took a walk through the zoo today and came across a exhibit of Flamingo's. They seemed to average a height of about 4.5'.

I think I need to go to the zoo more often.

Most of the time when I see them they are bent over feeding

YES, you have a wonderful zoo in Columbia...visit as often as you can, what a treat!

Apparently for over a century scientists have been debating whether flamingos are native to Florida and the consensus has been that they are not native. However new studies prove that flamingos are in fact native to Florida.

I've always thought it amazing that flamingos are found on every continent except Antarctica and Australia. Very very few other species can claim that! For plants I think its yarrow and fireweed.

The tallest bird in North America is the Whooping crane. We have a flock that winters here, in North Alabama.
