Flamingos flock in groups of several hundred birds. They often perform their mating displays together, like the flamingos pictured. The colour of their feather is a result of their diet, pigments in their food called “carotenoids” are responsible for the red and pink colours of their feathers. A flamingo will spend 15-30% of the day in the cleaning their feathers, oil produced in a special gland will be spread over feathers with help of their beaks.
