FLAMINGOS

The flamingo is a bird belonging to the family Phoenicopteridae of the Phoenicopteriformes order. The phoinikopteros scientific name (Greek) means that it has red wings, with feathers of red wings. Red Latin: ruber, red.
Flamingos are wading birds with curved beaks., They measure between 90 and 150 cm.
Also known in Portuguese as flamingo, large flamingo, goose of the north and pink goose.
Born white or gray color and acquiring pink color, for ingestion by filtration of microorganisms that are rich in carotenoids and algae in the water. They live in aquatic zones, shallow lakes and bogs rich in salt that usually cause health issues.
They are gregarious birds, living in numerous flocks and forming monogamous couples. To mate in the spring, they make their mud nests, structured 10-40 cm tall. Each couple creates and hatches a single egg. The food regurgitated for the chick is liquid and red as blood.
The world has six species of flamingos, two of which occur in Brazil: Chilean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis), which can be seen in the south, and American Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber), which nests in the Cape Orange region of Amapá (where they breed). They previously ranged all the way to the State of Rio Grande do Norte, as evidenced by a prehistoric painting found in the municipality of San Rafael.
