Flamingos

The flamingo’s pink colouring is caused by what they eat. Young flamingos are grey and their feathers turn pink only after they begin eating a diet consisting of shrimp and plankton. Adults range from light pink to bright red. These colours are obtained from their food. A well-fed, healthy flamingo is more vibrantly coloured. A white or pale flamingo is usually unhealthy or malnourished.

Flamingos frequently stand on one leg. The reason for this behaviour is not fully known. It could be because tucking one leg beneath the body may conserve body heat. As well as standing in the water, flamingos may stamp their webbed feet in the mud to stir up food from the bottom.

Another strange thing about their legs is that what looks like the knees are actually the ankles. The ankle joint allows the leg to rotate and bend backwards. To eat, flamingos wade out into the water, turn themselves completely upside-down, and — looking backwards — scoop up algae, insects, and shrimp with their oddly-shaped beaks. Their legs, which are longer than the rest of their bodies, help them wade out into deeper waters, where they can reach food sources other birds can’t, while their webbed feet support them on the soft mud.
