The flamingo is a tall wading bird with mainly pink or scarlet plumage and long reddish legs and neck. It has a heavy bent bill that is held upside down in the water in order to filter-feed on small organisms.

A wading bird is a waterbird, especially one with long legs, that habitually wades in shorelines or mudflats. Wading birds are frequently found in coastal areas. The color of the flamingo's plumage is a result of their diet, mainly brine shrimp and other beta carotene rich organisms.

The flamingo is the national bird of The Bahamas. Flamingo ornaments are often a popular lawn ornament in the U.S.A.
